Look at Michael Gadomski’s photographs of prickly pear cactus, seagulls on a beach or a cedar twisted like a Bonsi tree and you’ll wonder how he found them all in Pennsylvania.

Gadomski throughout his career has photographed parts of Pennsylvania that few Pennsylvanians have seen or would even recognize as part of their state.

Meet the man and see his photos on Sunday, Aug. 31, 8 p.m. at Hickory Run State Park. His presentation will be near the beach of Sand Spring Lake.

A retired park ranger, Gadomski has published 11 books, including “Wild Pennsylvania: A Celebration of Our State’s Natural Beauty,” “The Poconos: Pennsylvania’s Mountain Treasure,” and his newest, “Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.”
