Competition time again! All my budding photographer readers can enter this one courtesy of Lloyds TSB. The competition requires you capture British weather (so the photo needs to be taken in GB). Simple enough – turn up in the UK, point your camera to the sky and shoot! The prize money is a cool £10,000. How's that for incentive? You could even buy a nice coat to cope with the weather with that money.
