Welcome to my web gallery. It gives a flavour of my nature photography work in a diary format. This blog will be updated regularly with new pictures. All photos are taken 'in the wild', with love and respect for nature.

A holiday week on Gran Canaria. The weather on the island had 2 faces. The north was cloudy and windy, the south sunny and calm. The first photo features some houses of local fisherman on the north, facing the Atlantic. The second photo shows the arid and dry south. After a climb uphill from our appartment in Puerto de Mogán, you enter an area of vulcanic rock with some sparcely populated bushes. Ideal terrain of Southern Great Grey Shrike (Lanius excubitor, race koenigi /Klapekster), Canary (Serinus canaria/Kanarie), a few dark-headed Blue Tits (Parus caeruleus, race teneriffae/Pimpelmees), Kestrels (Falco tinnunculus/Torenvalk).

Nature photography is my passion! The diversity of nature keeps inspiring me. I always look for opportunities to capture the beauty of the world we live in.
I am 52 years old, happily married to Judith.
