Cornwall's spectacular landscapes feature in a new calendar to support wildlife around the county.

Idyllic scenes from the stunning peninsula, including Hayle, Ponsanooth, Penzance, Camborne, Newquay, Bodmin Moor, Par and The Lizard, show off the county in 2013.

And in keeping with the ecological principles of the producers, Cornwall Wildlife Trust, the Wild Cornwall calendar is printed locally on recycled paper and sold through small outlets.

The images were captured by the Trust's photographic group and include two pictures by renowned wildlife photographer David Chapman.

Serena Pettigrew-Jolly, deputy marketing and fundraising manager for Cornwall Wildlife Trust said the calendar was "very special".

"It highlights the unique beauty of Cornwall and is produced entirely locally," she added.

"It features Cornish photos, taken by photographers living in Cornwall, and is produced and printed in Cornwall entirely for the benefit of Cornwall's wildlife."

The cover photograph, taken by Clive Kingsley, is of the iconic Wheal Coates engine house, near St Agnes.

Inside there is a mixture of sea and landscapes, and close-up images featuring bluebells and corn marigolds, as well as a vibrant poppy field. The production costs are borne by a group of businesses which support the Trust and all money raised goes directly to fund wildlife conservation work in Cornwall.
