Sean O'Lohan of Wicklow took this shot on Brittas Bay Beach. "It was the National Surf Lifesaving Championships...the ultimate aim is to save lives," he says. "I hope my picture can be used, as it would create great awareness for the above."

After receiving some fab holiday snaps from our readers, we decided to compile the best of the bunch into a summer scrapbook. Great summer holidays are all about the happy memories, after all, so why not gather the happiest into one place?

There's still time to submit yours:

Just email your photos to travel@independent.ie or tweet using the hashtag #IndoSubmit for your chance to make the gallery.

Check if your picture made the gallery above - here are our favourites so far!

Jess sent us this gorgeous pic of a local sailing down the Amazon in South America using the hashtag #IndoSubmit on Twitter. "Beautiful sunset and silhouette," she says. Our thoughts exactly!

7. The View from Slieve Gullion

"I went with some friends and climbed Slieve Gullion mountain," says Caroline Halpenny. "It was the first time I ever climbed anything. I have lost the sight in the right of my eye, so this made it harder to do. But it was worth every minute. This was the best medicine."

8.The Craic in Krakatoa

"My feet on a volcanic beach on Krakatoa, Indonesia," writes Marie Fleming. "I spent some of my summer working in Java and chasing volcanoes in my spare time, such an amazing place!" We wholeheartedly agree!

9. Singing in the rain...
