Top shots flow in summer heat

The QT has received some great photos already in our annual reader photograph competition.

We're desperate to give a feature-packed Nikon Key Mission 170 camera, worth $579, to one lucky reader.

To win, all you need to do is take a photograph that best expresses what summer means to you and send it to us. Could it be any easier?

If you're short on inspiration, check out this range of pictures that we have received over the last couple of weeks.

Get your camera, or your phone, out and get snapping.
