Endgame Magic #154

As a warm-up, here is the position: White is a queen up and it is White to move, but where should he go with his king? If the white king goes to the f-file, Black will queen with check, but if the king goes to the d-file, Black has ...Rd1+ and White will lose his queen. Do you have an idea how White can win this game?
