If you want to take a trip to the mountains, or the beach, or the desert, or if you want to see marine life or cactus flowers, San Diego is the right place.

San Diego County is one of the most geographically diverse and biologically rich in the nation. And now that diversity is being celebrated by several great photographers in a new exhibit at the San Diego Natural History Museum. The photos display San Diego's rich ecosystems in all their beauty and complexity.

The exhibit, Ecosystems of San Diego County opens Saturday at the San Diego Natural History Museum in Balboa Park.

The 80 photographs in the exhibit are the work of 14 local photographers.

“The exhibition has been curated to inspire an appreciation for San Diego’s lush biomes. Each artist has provided a portion of their work that is distinct and mesmerizing,” Abe Ordover, who curated of the exhibition, said in a release.

The photographs will be on display beginning Jan. 11 at The Ordover Gallery on the fourth floor of the museum. A free opening reception will be held from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. on Jan 11.
