    Eagles battling in the snow, a tiger prowling the long grass of India and an erupting volcano in Chile.

    These are some of the stunning images in the running for the 2016 Sony World Photography Awards - with many capturing breathtaking shots of mother nature at her finest in the likes of Switzerland and Canada.

    One photographer, Z Chen from China, submitted an incredible still of the sunset around Viti, a crater in Iceland that is shaped like a love heart, and another, Amri Arfianto from Indonesia, captured the moment a male peacock spread his tail feathers with eye-popping style.

    So far, this year's 'open' category submissions, sent in to the World Photography Organisation, include an extraordinary variety of incredible images of wildlife and some of Earth's greatest landscapes.

    All winning and shortlisted photographers will be included in a global press campaign in London in April 2016 - the selected Open Photographer of the Year will also receive $5,000 (£3,260) plus flights and accommodation to the awards.

    Launched in 2008, the awards are dedicated to supporting and cultivating photographic culture and are open to photographers of all levels - from amateurs to 'fully-fledged' professionals - and winners will be selected in four categories (professional, open, student and youth).

    The open and youth competitions close on January 5, while entries for the professional competition must be submitted by January 8.

    Best picture of Howard, really shows his good side
