Spring in the Netherlands

White Stork and windmill

Ask a foreigner about the Netherlands and you’ll hear about tulips, windmills and wooden shoes (or maybe about our drug policy and the red light district, but that’s a different story). To spoil the image, I don’t own a pair of wooden shoes and haven’t seen a tulip in a while, but we do still have some windmills. This is a typical spring in the Netherlands image. An old windmill, a stork searching for food and if you could hear the sound you would hear some Black-tailed Godwit and a Chiffchaff.

It’s really nice to be able to go out for photography after work again. The days are getting longer, the weather is nice, it’s a real joy to be out again. Especially with my new Canon EF 2x III extender on the 70-200mm. This was one of the first pictures I took with that combination and I’m quite impressed by the results.
