An SA pastoralist has had their image included among a collection of 12 winners in the Spirit of the Bush photography competition.
Held by charity Rural Aid, the competition had a record more than 1100 entries from right across the country.
Rural Aid chief executive officer John Warlters said it was heartening to see so many quality captures.
"The Spirit of the Bush competition attracts photos from every corner of the country and reflects every part of life on the land," he said.
"It's mesmerising to see the highs and lows of farm life reflected in action shots, sweeping horizons and moments of quiet reflection."
Mr Warlters said there was a strong theme of "hope" among the images in this year's collection.
"The winning photos tell a story of both work and play," he said.
"Events like harvest and planting are featured, as well as moments of rest, relaxation, and recreation."
He was also impressed by the increase in numbers.
"It gets harder to pick the winners every year!" Mr Warlters said.
"Last year, Rural Aid received 720 entries. This year, more than 1100 were submitted!"
The 12 winning entrants will have their photos used in the Rural Aid 2023 calendar, and help raise funds for the charity.
Among the 12 winners was a photograph submitted by Anna Nunn, Wertaloona Station, in the Flinders Ranges.
It will sit alongside images from Vic, NSW, Qld and WA.
The Rural Aid 2023 calendar will be available for purchase and pre-order later this year.
