These astounding photos were snapped by the finalists in the Sunday Times Wilderness Photograph of the Year competition.

During the course of this exciting competition, we asked our Facebook fans to vote for their favourite images from a gallery of top entries each month.

Our expert judges now have to decide which one of these seven Public Choice images will earn a spot in the top 15 photos, which will be considered for this year's grand prizes courtesy of Canon and Wilderness Safaris.

We'll announce which Public Choice photo made the cut on the Sunday Times Facebook page next week.
