Well, it looks like it's another year where we're stuck in the office but we'd love to see your holiday snaps.
It's one of our most popular sections in our print edition - we literally received hundreds last year - and from December 30 we'll be running your best holiday photos here online and printing them in the Summer Times section of our print edition. The section runs until January 4.
We've put our handy five-part digital photography guide.
Email your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org and please put "summer photos" in the subject line.
Include your name, a contact phone number, details of who is in the photo, where they are, what they are doing, where they are from, and any other interesting details you think might interest our readers.
Most importantly, put your camera's setting on its highest possible picture resolution.
What are you waiting for? Make us jealous and get clicking!
