The Book

Natuur is om de Hoek was published in April 2013 and has been well received by the Dutch press and media as a book wich draws the reader towards the natural beauty close to home.

Wildlife is closer then we think and often lures around the corner. Wether it’s the Blue Tits in your nesting box or the wandering Robin in your backyard one can enjoy nature at any given moment in time. Photographing them however is another thing and often wildlife is elusive and swift wich can be frustrating is you want to take a closer look at them.

Wildlife photographer Jeroen Stel has a keen eye for animals living in the wild and not just that but over and over again he manages to get them in front of his lens. Wether it be mating Kingfishers, a Red Fox hunting for Greylag Geese or rutting Red Deer his images will bring you the excitement of the moment and the tranquility of nature at the same time.

Co-author Hans Peeters will tell their story in an original way but will also interview the photographer, local wardens and other nature enthousiasts. With viewing and photography tips and trics included to head out in to nature close to home this is the ultimate gift for yourself or someone else who appreciates nature and wildlife.
