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.

Alpine Heath (Coenonympha gardetta/Alpenhooibeestje) at Riederalp (alt. 2000m), Switzerland. At the end of the day the butterflies ‘disappeared’ all of a sudden in the vegetation. Arie Ouwerkerk and Iolente Navarro were experts in finding these resting insects in the long grass. I also gave it a try, and every time I found something it turned out to be an Alpine Heath (one of easier ones according to them), so why not photographing them in backlight?

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.
