1st Prize: Sunlight on Grasses- Centenary Walk. Amyn's winning photograph, taken using multiple exposures, made an immediate impact and perfectly summed up a glorious summer by capturing the light on grasses.

2nd prize: Alliums and Lupins. Gina's bold colours and simple composition was a vibrant rendition of the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens' summer experience.

3rd prize: Better Together. Of the many wildlife photographs entered, the judges commented that Lorraine's bees had the most impact and showed a striking level of detail, perfect colour and symmetry.
