Dear Sir/Madam, I attach my photograph for the 'onesummersday' photographic competition. It is in the third, 'open for everyone' category. It's title is 'Simplicity'. It was taken in Correl Glen Nature Reserve, County Fermanagh. The idea behind the picture is that although rain often brings little cheer, we can't live without it. Rain is life. These rain drops induce wonder, stillness and silence. We can't reserve feelings of well-being for sunny days.   Yours faithfully,Laurence Speight

From Tim Geary age 63 This photograph was taken on 30th June 2012 At Browns Bay, Islandmagee. A small, relatively unknown bay, but one rich in wildlife and from which one can view the Glory of the Antrim coast in a wide variety of climactic Moods. The Mull of Kintyre is obscured by the rain squall in the centre of the horizon, but  reappeared shortly thereafter. I have hundreds of photographs of Browns Bay and they are all different. Its what I love about this country.RegardsTim Geary

It's time once again to get your cameras and mobile phones at the ready for the Belfast Telegraph's fourth One Summer's Day photography competition.

The Belfast Telegraph and the Northern Ireland Tourist Board (NITB) have again teamed up to launch the country's biggest mass participation photographic event.

We're calling on everyone to pick up a photographic device on a specific day this summer – this Saturday (June 29) – and take a photograph that illustrates what Northern Ireland means to them.

The idea behind the competition is that as many people as possible across the province go out on Saturday and take a photograph of somewhere that is important to them.

It can involve people or pets, be an action shot, or just be a beautiful scenic photograph.

Participants are in with a chance to win a fabulous family hotel or self-catering break in Northern Ireland, courtesy of the NITB.

As well as a chance to win a short staycation break, the top 100 photos will be included in a special commemorative supplement to be published in September.
