If you are a fan of native plants, Ohio landscapes, beautiful images or photography in general, you will not want to miss Dave FitzSimmon’s presentation at Gorman Nature Center on Monday Oct.13th, 2008 at 7:00 pm.

This absolutely stunning photo of American Lotus, Nelumbo lutea was taken by Dave- and you’ll see many more landscapes and images just as inspiring. American Lotus is one of Ohio’s largest and most beautiful flowers. It obviously lives in close association with water and Old Woman’s Creek is one of the best locations in Ohio to see this jumbo-sized beauty in profound numbers. It won’t be blooming this time of year, but mark your calendar to visit next year to be awed by a sea of creamy white blossoms held above calm waters.

But, back to the program: Ohio Landscapes: Photographs of the Buckeye State by David FitzSimmons, internationally-published nature photographer and Ohio native, will display landscape photography from around Ohio. Journey through the seasons to natural areas around the Buckeye State—from the Ohio River to Lake Erie, from secluded waterfalls to statewide sunsets. Dave’s genius is nature photography, having reached an estimated 1.5 million viewers to date, his slide programs and lectures appeal to a wide range of audiences both within Ohio and beyond.

David also has 2 books in the works. Animals of Ohio’s Ponds and Vernal Pools is a cooperative effort with natural history photographer Gary Meszaros and Waterfalls of Ohio, featuring Dave’s writing and photos will be a guide book to some of the most beautiful and scenic falls and cascades in the Buckeye State.

This free program is open to the public and will be sponsored by the awesome Richland County Master Gardeners. Gorman Nature Center is a 1 hour drive from Columbus or Cleveland. I hope to see you there!
