Yesterday I attended the Dragonflies workshop by Erich Kuchling organized by the Lighthouse photography school Augsburg. This is the result! Not bad considering that I had to wake up at 3:30 am to be on location at 5:30 am... And if you know me and don't believe it: I really got up on time! :) And it was worth it...
