Heleen's Photography Blog



Hi everyone, thanks for coming to my site! I’m very excited to be sharing my work with you on a daily basis and to hear what you think. I started off with photos from southern Africa, but have expanded my focus after 1 year, including the rest of the world.¬†You can browse per month (see Portfolio on the right) or by theme or even hit search at the bottom of the page.

NEW: each photo is for sale as well, please leave a reply or contact me!


I know I posted a similar shot not too long ago, but I just really loved this close up shot, portraying so much detail. In the near future I will post some more close up portraits of elephants.

Catch of the day

Normally I don’t care much for birds, but I do think this young fish eagle with a fresh catch was a great catch of my own!
