Welcome visitor.

Thank you for visiting.

On this photopage you will see the amazing world of plants in a way you rarely do.
With more than 7000 photo's this page is intended to give you somewhat of a scientific view of the plants and flowers shown and not really a romantic one. Focus lies in the important details and true colours.
The photo's on this page are therefore used by scientists worldwide and the naming of the plants constantly monitored and updated with the help of several of the world's most renowed taxonomists.

Many plants on this page are very rare and therefore it often happens that the photo's have been made from cultivated plants. As I dislike 'fake' photography these photo's are easily recognisable by the gray or black studio background that make the important details stand out best.
All plants that look like they where photographed in nature really are, unless otherwhiles stated.

I hope you will be as amazed as I am by the variation in colours and shapes the botanical world has to offer.

!!NEWS!!

Winter 2016/2017 A visit to the legendary Seychelles have resulted in many photo's of the special plant an animal live found nowhere else on earth with species like the Coco de Mer, the largest seed on the planet and the Seychelles Blue Pigeon. :: under construction::

Summer 2016. A short visit to North Eastern Poland was made to photograph the elusive pink frog orchid (Ponerorchis cucculata).

In January 2016 we went to Tenerife to find the endemic canary orchids and dragon trees and also stumbled on utter rarities such as two Kunkeliella species and Lavatera phoenicea. :: under construction::

Spring 2014 :: Many more additions to the La Reunion album. Last visit to La Reunion was combined with a short visit to the neighboring island Mauritius. We did see some nice things there as well. Eventually the Reunion island album will me merged into a new Mascarene island album to include Mauritius as well.



If you are interested to use any of the photo's, please let me know. This is rarely a problem but photo use without whritten permission is not permitted.

I hope you enjoy!

Kind regards
