Welcome to my worldwide travel, wildlife and nature photography website. I am a passionate amateur with a keen interest in travel, natural history, taxonomy, and of course, photography. I display my work as single images, galleries, albums, and photo essays supported. I add information and narrative about the photographs that I hope will be of interest to photographers, naturalists, and travellers alike.
My nature travel photography includes a wide range of natural scenes, including flora, fauna, landscapes, and close-ups blended with worldwide travel subjects such as people, architecture, and other artificial elements.
In the broadest sense, wildlife is undomesticated animals and all other living organisms living in a natural environment. The only three classification kingdoms applicable to my wildlife photography are animals, plants and fungi. I only include Animals in my wildlife photo albums; plants and fungi are part of the nature section.
Arrangement of my Animals (Animalia) webpages is in time-ordered evolutionary history, broadly in line with phylogenetics and fossil records. From the classification viewpoint, animals split into two groups:
(1) Invertebrate comprising Insecta (Insects) and Arachnida (Arachnids) placed in phylum Arthropoda (Arthropods).
(2) Vertebrates which contain Reptilia (Reptiles), Aves (Birds) and Mammalia (Mammals) part of phylum Chordata, subphylum Vertebrata.
The animal photo albums display the invertebrate and vertebrate animal species that I have photographed except birds that feature in separate photo album collections.
First published in 2018, this responsive mobile-friendly website replaces my old Purpleimages (2006-2017) website. I have withdrawn the Purpleimages wildlife content and re-published applicable content here. I intend to remove the Purpleimages travel content and re-publish it on this website’s travel and nature sections.
