The First

Last week we had a daytrip to The Hague, and I took this shot of the famous statue of Willem van Oranje, the Father of the Netherlands (made in 1845 by Emile de Nieuwerkerke). The unusual viewpoint and the stark contrast with the blue sky make the shot. One of my most faved photographs at Flickr in recent weeks.
