Appreciating the Beauty of Nature - Nature Photography Blog

Privacy Policy



This blog will be dedicated to celebrating the beauty of nature, which is the inspiration for my work. I will share images, stories about the images and interesting facts about what you see in the images. I hope you enjoy them and that you will appreciate this beautiful environment as much as I do!

I am thrilled to have .earth as my URL as it is symbolic for my mission to celebrate and appreciate the Earth’s natural world. When we feel appreciative, we are more inclined to help protect our planet and conserve our animal species!

It also complies with the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) (which gives certain rights to individuals who are based in the European Union (“EU”) during their interactions with me).

My Privacy Policy explains in simple terms how I collect, use, disclose and otherwise manage personal information about you.

Like most other websites, my website utilises this standard technology called “cookies” and web server logs to collect information about how my website is used. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our website, and the websites visited just before and just after my website.

These cookies allow me to count visits and traffic sources so that I can measure and improve the performance of my website. They help me to know which pages are the most and the least popular and to see how visitors move around the website.

All the information that these cookies collect is aggregated and is therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies, I will not know when you have visited my site and I will not be able to monitor its performance.
Also, without the use of these cookies, certain functionality may become unavailable.


Posts on this site may include embedded content (for instance, videos, images, articles and the like) from other websites. This content appears as part of posts on my website. Embedded content behaves in the exact same way as if you had visited the other website yourself.

As a consequence, these websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.
