Summer photography competition: Your best entries from week two

Summer Pix 18: The winner will receive a Panasonic camera from Harvey Norman

 

Irish people are serious snappers. That’s the conclusion we’ve reached as we come to the end of week two of the Summer Pix 18 photography competition. So far we’ve had nearly 1,000 photos from readers sharing their snaps of the summer.

This week’s eclectic selection featured dramatic seascapes, giant candyfloss, hungry deer, fiddle players and all kinds of watery antics. The best of this week’s entries are below. Thanks to everyone who has taken part and keep sending in your photos to be in with a chance of winning.

Competition closes on Tuesday, August 14th. Happy snapping.
