    Beauty Beneath My Boots - an exhibit featuring the nature photography of Winter Park native, Leslie Ramey.

    "I've been fascinated with nature since childhood. As an adult, I incorporated my love of the outdoors - flora and fauna - into my career path, all the time dabbling with photography; capturing images of the things I loved best.

    The beauty and magic of the natural world is right here in our own backyards, right under our feet. All the images in this collection were captured within a thirty mile radius of my home. My hope is that in viewing my photographs, you will be inspired to stop and appreciate the 

    Beauty Beneath Your Boots."
