Gasometer Oberhausen Museum, Wonders of Nature Exhibit 2016 III

Gasometer Oberhausen exhibit "Wonders of Nature" has reached more that 500.000 visitors so far and has just announced to extend the exhibit until 30.12.2016!


My contribution are some images of a Zinnia haageana flower in large prints, on display in their exhibition area below that globe, demonstrating the difference between our human vision, as well as a video presentation shown on LCD panel which originates from the BBC series "How to grow a planet - The hidden World of UV" which has several VIS and UV images of different flowers in it.

The exhibit shows in total some 150 large images and video presentations by the most famous nature photographers and is not only visually stunning, but also highly educative and suited for interested individuals as well as families and schools. Go have a look, over 500.000 have already seen it, it will be well worth it!

There is also a book available about it: Wunder der Natur, Die Intelligenz der Schöpfung ISBN/EAN: 9783837514629 (in German language)

I have written about that exhibit previously HERE

Stay tuned, more will follow on that fascinating subject...
