Bush and beach scenes shot by five photographers feature on 60¢ stamps released by Australia Post today.
The images were chosen as part of an Australia Day photo contest that drew 2719 entries.
Two Victorian photographers selected as finalists in the Living Australian contest this year are keen amateurs who travelled widely for their work.
Retired Melbourne businessman Ronald Rockman, 70, said he had been taking pictures for 55 years. During his early career in the rag trade, he sold garments on the road, which gave him the chance to travel through central Australia, where he loved to take portraits and landscapes.
His photograph in the new stamp issue depicts a fuel station in the town of Blinman in the Flinders Ranges in South Australia.
Mr Rockman, whose late cousin Irving Rockman was an experienced underwater photographer and former lord mayor of Melbourne, said he was chuffed to have one of his photographs printed on a postage stamp.
Truck driver and farm labourer Chevelle Williams, 28, of Redesdale in central Victoria, selected her photo for the competition from a series of shots taken on a farm at Langley, north of Kyneton. She said she was working for woolgrowers on the property, which has been operated by the Diss family for almost a century, when some merino rams were penned before shearing.
"I started stalking these sheep, but these rams started to stalk me. They just stood there and confronted me with all this attitude," she said.
Four of the rams stood shoulder to shoulder, protecting the rest of the flock, while she approached with her camera.
Ms Williams, who drives interstate B-doubles and road trains, as well as doing general farm work, said she strove to take images of life on the land.
"So many kids don't know where their milk comes from," she said. "They think it just comes from a supermarket."
The other finalists in the Living Australian contest were Port Lincoln in SA photographer Ann Clarke, who won last year's contest; Sydney artist Damian Madden; and overall contest winner Wanda Lach, also of New South Wales, whose entry featured a row of letterboxes on a country road.
