When viewing our top photos for July, you’d never know we were waterlogged with many inches of rainfall — but we needed it after the spring drought.

Even with the rain, photographers still served up some of my favourite summer things: paddling, rainbows, live local music, herons, white-tailed deer, and reflections on waterways. We are indeed the “land of reflections” — the meaning of the word Kawartha in the Anishinaabe language.

Thanks once again to all of our local photographers who allow us to share their work!

Do you want to get on our top photographers list? All you need is an Insta account and to tag us using our hashtag #kawarthanow when posting your photo.

We share photos from across our readership area, which is the five-county area surrounding Peterborough which includes Peterborough, Northumberland, City of Kawartha Lakes, Haliburton, and Hastings (we sneak in the occasional Algonquin Park picture as well, particularly if it’s by a Kawarthas photographer).
