Walking onto the bridge i start setting up the tripod , and yes you guessed it, Jan takes out her I-Phone and takes this.......................
and i missed it!!!!!!!!! Arghhhhhh
great cloud and colour and the flock of seagulls
Memories of the windmill sunset in Norfolk that i missed Again :(
Any how , i get set up and take a few .............. in fact loads but after 15 mins i got this one..
i use long lens to get the best colour behind behind Spires in silhouette
I have been moving around along the bridge taking a few shots , But had to wait until 4.20 ish before i got a few images i like :)
using a 10 stop nd filter to smooth out the water i take this image :)
We have moved a little way around towards Charles bridge, going down to see the swans........
Jan takes this image as i shoot into darkness. can you see me? lol
Dusk into darkness.
We quickly make our way to Lesser town tower , to get a view from high up at dusk ,It costs about £3 to go up the tower , about the same for all of them it seems. just as we get to the top of the tower, a police car drives onto the Pedestrian only bridge!!!!!!!!!!! WTF? can see the blue light streak followed by brake lights .
As the light fades i shoot these images of the Castle/Palace
view panorama big HERE
Charles Bridge , dark now.
Looking up towards St Nicholas church from the towers mid level walkway
After coming down from the tower , walking onto the bridge i stop to try shooting the water mill wheel in "Devils stream" which separates Lesser town from Kampa island.
Longish exposure blurs the wheel :)
The Tower we have just come down from on the right.
Here i am shooting the Charles bridge down by the river :)
Looking upstream to the National Theatre , beautifully illuminated.
a 10 second exposure used to smooth out the water combined with a 2 second exposure on the buildings for extra sharpness.
Back on the bridge i shoot the Tower we have just been up with St Vitus Cathedral up on castle hill behind.
I shoot this while walking across the bridge , putting tripod on the wall.
the red lights are traffic lights , i tried to get a green one but failed!!!!!!! Doh!
Photobomb by Jan :D Arghhhhhh lol
Now time to get the reflection image i failed last night when the sleet was blowing into the lens!
much better conditions tonight ,and i manage to get the wooden groyne and weir in the frame :D
a long lens shot of St Vitus Cathedral Magnificent building!
Turning back to the river, a nice wide shot with reflections :) cant stay any longer , Jan is getting cold waiting for me. she is so Patient :)
Time to head back now, but a stop off in Old Town Square for a last look at the x mass market which is closing tonight, i manage to get the Astronomical clock, x mass Tree and Tyn Church all in the one image :)
The moon appears through the clouds between the Spires :) YAY
The lights look wonderful on all the buildings and the market stall roofs
the end of another fantastic day in Prague , but we are going to get dinner first somewhere in this area before going back to the hotel. its last full day tomorrow ;(
