For the month that contains Canada’s national holiday, I don’t think we could have planned our top photos to represent July in The Kawarthas any better than this month’s collection.
These are the consummate images of summer. Wild rice in Chemong Lake, the Canadian flag on a farm road, a cedar canoe. A majestic heron, ducks in the sunset, and a loon parent and loonlet. And if that’s not enough, let’s add the perfect “land of reflections” island in the Canadian Shield and a perfect lily pad.
I think our local photographers have done us proud this month. As always, we thank them for tagging us and allowing us to share.
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 2022.
