Blue Emperor

Last weekend I gave a few workshops at the Veluwse FotoDagen. This is a new photography event with a photography fair, lectures and workshops. All this in a really special location, the old radio station of Radio Kootwijk. This is a very typical building in the middle of a heath field surrounded by forest. When I had just arrived and made a quick tour through the heath field, the air was buzzing with sounds. Stonechats, singing Skylarks, Curlews they all seemed happy with the beautiful weather. When I returned to the fair they showed me a emerging Blue Emperor. It was emerging in the small pond in front of the building which made me decide to use a wide-angle lens to capture both the dragonfly as the building in the back. A nice sunny image that captures the mood of the day.
