Paddle boats on Lake Burley Griffin, an ice-cream in the backyard or a dip at Dickson Pool - what does a Canberra summer mean to you?
Our warmest season has proved inspirational, with some stunning shots already submitted to The Canberra Times summer photo competition.

The competition gives budding snappers the chance to have their favourite shots published for everybody to enjoy, with prizemoney up for grabs.
Last year's winner, Watson's Tom Corra, captured some friends drinking wine and fishing on a beach near Moruya. He said he had entered the competition on a couple of occasions before taking out the prize.
For your chance to win, all you have to do is snap one of those magic summer moments and send it in to The Canberra Times.
