"I was asked to create something by the Millbrook BIA that would show the amazing wealth of community, entertainment and business in Millbrook," Stephens tells PTBOCanada. "I have grown up in the beautiful landscapes and inevitably that is why I have become so interested in landscape photography."

Stephen adds: "I have always wanted to create something about this small town and having the opportunity to do so has been somewhat surreal. The experience has given me a fresh and rejuvenated look on where I live and the people who are here."

We're so lucky to have The Centennial Fountain at Little Lake in Peterborough, which is the highest jet fountain in Canada.

Installed in 1967, the water shoots up 76m (250 feet).

And it creates beautiful rainbows...

Kawarthas From The Sky Is Beautiful

Patrick J. Stephen, the awesome photographer/videographer who created this video about Peterborough, has produced a short trailer video called "Kawarthas From the Sky" that is beautiful.

Patrick tells PTBOCanada how the video came together showing the amazing Kawartha landscape views, farmland, rolling hills and sunsets:

"A little while ago, I approached the Millbrook Businesses Improvement to work on a promotional film. It is really going to be fun showcasing my hometown. I've been photographing these same landscapes for years and wanted to get a different perspective and add motion to really give the landscapes energy. I've been planning this shot in my mind for months to open with a car driving down into the valley as the sun rises. I got in touch with the talented drone pilot Steve Mayhew from Yo Steve Productions to help out. The conditions were perfect. Originally it was just going to be that one shot, but as we got flying around with the drone, we came away with some pretty cool views. We don't often see landscapes from this height and time of day. After seeing what we were getting, I just had to create something with it."

We hope to see extended version of the video at some point down the road.

Patrick J. Stephen Just Made This Awesome Video About Peterborough

Talented young photographer/videographer Patrick J. Stephen approached PTBOCanada about doing a video about Peterborough to showcase his skills—and this city he loves.

We loved Patrick's video so much celebrating the city's people, places and things that make it so special, that we wanted to share it with you on PTBOCanada.

"Peterborough has more to offer than a place to live," says Patrick. "It is an amazing community to grow up in, a place to grow a business, a place to experience art and enjoy life. You can see the relentless energy through the busy streets, ingenuity in the business there and beauty in the landscapes that surround it. There is truly no place quite like Peterborough."
