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.

Black watchers and white angel
I was entirely in the flow at the Strabrechtse Heide this morning. The light was great. After a short encounter with Scottish Highland Cattle in the dark I photographed these characteristic pine tree silhouettes in the blue hour followed by a great session with a Great White Egret (Ardea alba/Grote Zilverreiger). He or she was solemnly wading in the water surrounded by the void. Again I went by bike. This way my reach is wider and I can move faster than on foot. And above all, it is really an excellent way to experience quietness and get into the flow.

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.
