Dean Thompson's striking action photograph captures a fun-filled moment at Jindabyne over Christmas.

Vanessa Burdett's stunning silhouette shot of her son Harvey cooling down under a sprinkler at sunset is just as delightful.

Robert Richmond's beachside battle with a shark at Bermagui was captured on a smartphone by Ying Richmond.
