Last week’s Friday Mystery Place was indeed a very tricky one, although, if you look closely, there were some hints built into the image. As justbluedutch figured out correctly, it is the statue of Queen Wilhelmina, who ruled the Netherlands from 1890-1948. Her inauguration was in 1898, as she was only 10 when she ascended to the throne. One of Queen Wilhelmina’s main contributions to Dutch society is her steadfast leadership throughout World War II; ruling from the relative safety of London, her broadcasts inspired the Dutch to persevere in the face of horrible oppression and tragedy.
Something a little lighter, and I don’t think overly difficult for this week…
Where’s this robin? And yes, it’s on a rental car 🙂
This image was captured with a Canon EOS 5D Mk III and an EF 24-105mm f/4L lens. The exposure settings were at 1/125 seconds at f/6.3 and 200 ISO.
