This young giraffe in Pilanesberg National Park seems to practice his balance. It must be so hard to have these long legs and the long neck. I know I struggle on a daily basis to get my back and legs aligned, and I’m not nearly as tall!
Giraffes are so tall they are actually quite hard to photograph with a telelens. Glad to have gotten some landscape in there with this one!

Who says portraits should be of people? This majestic male giraffe obviously has personality!

Today is World Giraffe Day. Did you know that? I didn’t until I read it on Facebook. The shortest day for the longest-necked animal – it’s kind of fitting. Let’s pause and think about this beautiful and strange animal that is in danger of extinction today!

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…
