But far from being mundane or ordinary, these photographs celebrate the beauty of the manmade environment around us.

The images from the first Institution of Civil Engineers East of England Photographic Competition show Ipswich and its surrounds from a different angle.

Entrants were asked to submit a picture that would illustrate civil engineering to a wider audience in the categories of physical achievement, sustainability and technical excellence/innovation.

Best placed of the local entries was Bogdan Tutoveanu's picture of regeneration in central Ipswich using the reflections on the glass of the Lord Foster-designed Willis building which took out second prize.

Jon Gibb, award winning Great Yarmouth photographer and one of the competition judges, said Mr Tutoveanu's photograph was a “nicely seen image” with “great abstract quality”.
