Winning images from a competition that challenged photographers to capture the essence of Lake Erie life are on display at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus. They provide snapshots of one of Ohio's most valuable and dynamic natural features, Lake Erie.

Thirteen images that portray sustainable use, development and protection of Ohio's Lake Erie coastal resources received top honors for the 2009 Life on Lake Erie amateur photography contest. The photos incorporate shoreline landscapes, wildlife, plants and people enjoying various coastal activities. Among the works on display through Jan. 4, 2010 are works by Dena Kraft, of Oregon; Maggi Dandar, of Curtice (winning twice); and John K. Spears, of Oregon. In 2010, the images will appear at prime Ohio shoreline locations throughout the year, including in May and June at the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge in Oak Harbor; July and August 2010 at the Lake Erie Shores & Islands Welcome Center in Port Clinton; September and October (to be announced) and November and December at One Maritime Plaza in Toledo.
