She's a registered nurse at Morton Plant Hospital by profession but you'll find Kathy Lerche out and about with her Canon 60D in her free time.
Lerche loves taking photos of nature, animals and scenery, and has photographed some of Tampa Bay's most scenic sights as well as scenery in New England, her native Ireland, Seattle, Oregon and the Pacific coast.
"We find beauty and peace in the quiet moments of our lives," said Lerche. "Photography is my path to seeing and sharing these simple times."
Her latest exhibit, "Journey into Color," will be on display at Oldsmar City Hall throughout March and April.
