Landscape with E-M1 & Tokina 17mm f/3.5 & Speed Booster

Not the most exciting of pictures, but I'm adding a story to make up for it

The countryside is called Blaues Ländchen (blue country); in earlier times, sheep farming and cultivating flax were widespread and making cloth was a major source of income, and because the woad plant is quite common there, people used the blue dye that can be extracted from its leaves for dying the cloth – thus the name!

Cheers,
Robert
