Of course, I will not participate in the contest, but if you allow me to post something in the thread (should I actually shoot something) I would be gratefull.
Basically, we call most of our official public holidays 'Bank Holidays' because even the banks close on these days. But they aren't really 'British' as Scotland observe some different holiday dates to us in England and Wales and there are some differences in Northern Ireland too.

Great Britain = all the nations in the main island; England, Wales and Scotland.
United Kingdon = Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Re: Prizes!

I can clarify the prize fund now:
  • A couple of 1GB Compact Flash cards
  • An Olympus RM-1 infra red wireless shutter release
  • An Art of Lee Miller collapsible circular reflector (48cm, or 19in, wide when open)

A handy set of bits, but the main thing is the that the challenge is for FUN

The Wife and I just got home from the 2nd Bowood Baloon festeval.

The weather held up, and the wife even got a little sun burned.

Anyway....I have over a 1000 images to sort thought. Some may be fit for the challenge.

Re: The e-group Bank Holiday Challenge thread - entries here

Great stuff folks, I am glad you're starting to put together your collections... go for it.

I have a few (I can still take the shots yeah... but of course for those who might think otherwise - don't worry, I can't picj myself as the winner - I'll just enter for the fun of it ) but not all of them and though the weather has turned hugely for the worse this morning, am going out and about today to see how many more I can grab.

Keep enjoying yourselves folks...
