A new beginning

A newborn giraffe seems a fitting picture for this new website. In the past years, photography has become an important part of my life. In my free time, I love hiking, safaris and enjoying nature through photography. When I’m outside, the greatest and smallest creatures leave me in awesome wonder, and I feel connected to the divine. In this blog I aspire to share something of this experience.

Like this blog, the giraffe in the picture had just been born – a part of the umbilical cord is still visible. The baby was following its mother into the bush of the Pilanesberg National Park. I just love the fluffiness of its fur; it looks just like a cuddly toy giraffe…
