Some of the world's most spectacular landscapes have been captured in a stunning collection of images for Agora's 'The World's Best Photos of #Landscape2019'.

More than 25,000 photos were entered into the competition and 50 finalists have been selected, with the eventual winner set to take home a $1,000 (£776) cash prize.

One photographer from Vietnam pledged to donate part of any prize money to a ferryman he captured in his mesmerising picture.

Another finalist, who caught a stunning snapshot of Perucac Lake in Serbia, wanted to use the competition to highlight his country's beauty.

Milos Djokic said: "I want to show to the world that Serbia is an incredibly beautiful small country with a lot of spots like this one.”

Other pictures include an oasis in the Utah Desert, a path through the Red Sea and the cosmic clouds surrounding an active volcano.
