Saturday the 29th of June, my wife flew to England early, the kids and were going to spend some special time together, all we had to do was wait for the dishwasher repair guy to come and the day was ours. When he didnt turn up till 17:30 the kids were climbing the walls with unspent energy.  By the time he left it was coming up to what is normally bedtime.  So what I thought, its daddy rules today, we packed them into the car and headed to the beach at Crawfordsburn country park. They started to run along the beach exploring the rocks and shallows pointing out shells and crabs and pulling seaweed and pretending to be sea monsters.  The sun was just starting to set and they happened to see a bunch of seagulls on the rocks in the shallows.  For the next 45 minutes they proceeded to chase after them every time they landed and i got a few pictures.

'Wee Molly daydreams'

This photograph was taken in Dromantine where I live nearby and have many happy memories. This image is special to me as the child whom is a close neighbour is wearing my childhood dress which I wore many summers ago. I wanted to capture and reflect relaxation time at the start of the child's long summer in which she has all the time in the world to daydream.

THIS stunning image of St Colmcille on top of Binevenagh as he beckons to the sun is one of hundreds of readers’ images in our One Summer's Day gallery.

Budding photographers took to the streets, beaches and countryside across the province on Saturday, June 29 to take photographs of friends, family, pets and beautiful landscapes.

The result is a spectacular photographic time capsule of one summer’s day in Northern Ireland.

This is the third year of our competition, run in conjunction with the Northern Ireland Tourist Board.

Earlier this week, judge Gerry Fitzgerald commended the standard of entries, describing some as “amazing pictures that really capture the essence of summer”.

In the adult category David Flanagan came first with a striking picture of himself in the Mournes.

Fifteen-year-old Jade McCarten’s photograph illustrating a beautiful scene on Murlough Beach was also commended, while Megan Ross won the primary school section.

Among the images now online are Barbara Groves' picture of people at a funfair in front of Bangor's iconic Royal Hotel and a glimpse of the buttercup meadow at Carr's Glen as shot by Sara Duncan on a walk to look for wildflowers.
