Beach! Well life certainly is one
I can hear everyone diving for the holiday snaps as I type
Should we expect a barrage of sunset entries?
I live in Blackpool... I have miles of beach... this would be tough for me
That's right, discriminate against those of us who can't afford a holiday this year
The creative amongst you could make your own beach... bit of sand, some water, pebbles, etc. Would be a rather cool entry
There is a place in the Midlands called Walsall (lovely place ) Every Summer they dump a load of sand in the Town Centre and call it Walsall by the Sea............s'pose I could get myself along to that and get a pic or two.
That's really annoying. I was in Mallorca at the end of May / start of June so would have been able to take some stunning beach shots. I am now stuck in beachless Sheffield so not sure what shot to take. I'd really rather take a shot especially for the comp but perhaps I'll enter a shot from when I was in Mallorca instead...
Go down the cut with a bucket and spade, wearing your bikini and put it on a self timer
Blimey, three entries already
I have had a cracking idea for my entry
i have entered! trying to be a little different though.
like me, hopefully im going to see my parents in anglesey next week so i could have a go
Nice.... Off to Bulgaria on Saturday so hopefully I will be able to get some decent shots for this theme.
I can always send you that shot by PM if you'd like Steve
Strangely enough, i think i'll pass...........though i supose it could make an ideal blackmailing tool!
Going to be loads of archives, that being the case i think we can make this one a two week comp
From previous discussions we have had Sean I would guess that this amount of archived shots being entered will allow someone who comes up with something original to win easily
No, don't shorten it. I'm away shortly only to return on the 26th.
Well you better not come back and bang an archive in Tony
Where are you to Tony?
Going darn sarf to Southampton. My kids want to see Stonehenge, The Victory & a few others.
well i've made my entry - no chance of getting out to the beach this month due to moving house!!
I don't do beach holidays, and I live about as far inland as is possible!
Looks like I'm going to have to miss another month's competition...
Me as well ! I tend to have a holiday either for the Euro Championships or the World Cup (or both if finances allow) so it's going to be difficult to think of something. I thought about laying some sand down next to my pond but that would only attract the 7 millions cats that seem to live on my street
I don't own a camera except for the one on my Sony Camcordeer which is not great...I have had a look at the entries so far...how am I supposed to choose the one I think is best? There are some fantastic pictures!!! The two kids in the surf is uplifting, the surfing couple is a very romantic picture, the one with the hotels lit up at night, well that brings back good memories for me...brilliant...I'm thinking of buying a grown up camera and having a go...there are a few beaches along the Humber worthy of a picture...
I've just put in an entry (taken today!) which is hosted like Seans' was last month. Does not seem right to me breaking the format like that. Any thoughts?
My picture shows beach huts.
Many of the huts have names on them ... and this one was not hard to predict :-
22 entries so far, so it's going well as far as numbers are concerned.
I reckon at least 17 of the entries so far are archived shots, thats 77% of the entries
I feel another poll coming on!
Yes, I've got loads of pics from Portugal last year but am not using them. I imagine you have a few from you golf trip as well Steve ?
yep, just a few John.
We walked down to the beach at Vilamoura and I took a few there.
I didn't go in a bunker all week though
Separate names with a comma.
