PICTURES: Your chance to vote for best photograph of South Devon
The Westcountry is home to a vast array of spectacular and inspiring landscapes from salt marshes, chalk cliffs and ancient woodland, to historic villages, parklands and farmland.
Now some of the most stunning sights have been captured by both amateur and professional landscape photographers for a competition to find the very best pictures of scenery in the region.
Judges have chosen 36 finalists for four categories in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty photo competition.
Robin Toogood, AONB manager, said: "We are thrilled with the entries to the competition which reflect what individuals find inspirational about the AONB. We hope that everyone will take the opportunity to register their votes so that we have some truly representative winners."

People were invited to enter their pictures into the categories including 'Living and working in the AONB' which covered the changing face of farming and food production, fishing, community and village events such as fetes, shows, the school and the pub.
The second competition category is 'Wild in the AONB' for images that demonstrate the wilderness of the landscape and the flora and fauna lying within.
Another category is 'Active in the AONB' including images of walking, cycling and more adventurous leisure activities including coasteering, surfing, stand-up paddle-boarding and sailing.
There is also a category for under-18s.
Members of the public can vote for their favourites, and the winner will be presented with prizes by AONB patron Jonathan Dimbleby in Kingsbridge on October 15. All the finalists will then have their images displayed at a gallery in the town until October 21.
The judges were Brian Robson head of photography at South Devon College, marine biologist and underwater photographer Paul Naylor, and Greg Taylor, photographer with the Kingsbridge and Salcombe Gazette.
