There were three categories. Winner of the positive spirit of the park category was Rob Dyke.

He said: “You see a lot in the science park and we’re lucky that we’ve got these nice lakes.”

Rob captured people playing frisbee on a sunny day with his Nikon D7200 and 50-300mm lens.

“I just saw a group of guys playing with a frisbees, and because it’s a nice environment I got some pictures of them jumping up in the air.

“If you’ve got your eyes open you can see a nice photograph anywhere, in any situation, but particularly here because it is very beautiful.”

Lizzie Bell won the quirkiest photo of the park category.

She said: “I’m a very, very keen photographer. My dad was a great photographer so I had a great start, he taught me so much. It just bites you, it’s like a bug once you get a couple of lovely results.

“These were just so cute and I’d not seen a pure yellow duckling before in the wild. I knew it was magical when it went click.”

Jeanette Walker, director of Cambridge Science Park, said: “We are thrilled that so many people entered the park photography competition - we had so many terrific images.

“Most importantly this is an example of the sort of activities and social events we are creating on the park - a great way to meet people, make friends and identify potential business opportunities.”
