You can view the cottage and holiday rental company's picks, featuring 11 Irish and one Belgian winner, in the gallery above.

Over 800 entries were received its the sixth annual competition, Trident says, with the winners receiving a seven-night holiday in Ireland.

One winner, Una Hogan, described her feelings about her shot of Roundstone in Connemara, which features for the month of December.

“The photo means a lot to me because of the sense of achievement in managing to capture the fabulous light," she said.

"But also because I only have to look at it to feel that I am back there, in a beautiful location, on a quiet, crisp spring morning, with the world all to myself.”
