It’s been a year. Again.
On the rollercoaster of a second pandemic year, our mental health and well-being is critically important. We are so fortunate to live in The Kawarthas and have an outdoor playground within easy reach.
Many of our followers know the benefit of getting outdoors to alleviate their stress. The photographers that we share certainly know this as well. They have brought an abundance of Kawarthas nature to us and we are grateful for their generosity in allowing us to share their photos, every day, all year round. We’ve been sharing a photo every day since 2012! We hope that you enjoy this year’s top 12.
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).
To see our daily shares of photos, follow us on Instagram @kawarthanow and check out our feed’s highlight reels for recaps of every month in 2021.
