I have just learnt about this super competition for amateur photographers to find the British Weather Photographer of the Year
and as there has been a lot of it about, even in August - drizzle, rain, storms, wind and even some sunshine, there should be no shortage of opportunities for some great shots!
To enter the competition, participants must submit their photos capturing British weather to the Lloyds TSB website
. The overall winner will be picked on the basis of flair, technique and originality. The entries will be judged by a leading panel of meteorologists and photographers.
(All images are from a continuing commission to photograph "a year in the life of" a Scottish Estate on the Borders)
The competition will run from April 13th – September 30th
2010. Take a look at entries submitted so far: http://www.lloydstsbweathercompetition.co.uk/category/
