Attached is a photo of my favourite place in Belfast, the Cave Hill. I chose this location as no matter how many times I climb the hill I find the views of greater Belfast and even as far as the Mourne Mountains (on a clear day) simply breathtaking. It is the ideal way to escape the busy city, unwind, get some exercise and you are always rewarded with a certain sense of achievement as you climb high above the city and on to conquer the hill.Rather than taking a photo of the hill itself, I have climbed inside one of the caves and took a photo looking outwards.ThanksColin

Fledgling photographers were out and about all over Northern Ireland on Saturday, capturing images of their favourite places for the Belfast Telegraph’s One Summer’s Day photographic competition.

Sam Anderson entered his photograph of breathtaking rhododendrons and azaleas in full bloom at Tollymore Forest Park’s arboretum. He described the snapshot as: “A timeless scene which Ulster people can fondly remember down the years to perhaps a teenage romance.”

Ian Carr from east Belfast snapped a picture of a canoeist at Shaw’s Bridge. He described the area as: “A haven of solace to juke the rat race. Somewhere to walk, somewhere to talk. Take me there, to breathe fresh air.” Another competition entrant, named only as Colin, climbed into one of the caves at Cave Hill to capture an image he feels best represented Northern Ireland on the day.

The winners of the three categories in the contest — primary school, secondary school and everyone else — each get a family break in Northern Ireland. The closing date for the competition is Wednesday, June 30.

Background

The aim of ‘One Summer’s Day’ is to offer a snapshot of how Northern Ireland looked and what people were doing on one summer’s day in 2010.

Photographs needed to be taken in Northern Ireland on Saturday, June 19 and the closing date to receive your entries is June 30.

Winners of each category will receive a family break in Northern Ireland. The top 100 photographs will be included in a supplement. Photographs should be emailed to onesummersday@belfasttelegraph.co.uk with a short note explaining the picture’s content and what makes it so special. Details at belfasttelegraph.co.uk/summer.
