NASA has been spoiling us with stunning imagery this month. Having released the first images from the James Webb Space telescope it has also revealed the winners of its fourth annual Photographer of the Year competition. 

This contest isn't open to the public, but instead it celebrates photographers who actually work at the space agency. The results are diverse and impressive, including several black and white portraits of astronauts, the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and even some lunar field geology tasks taking place.
