Prague in the Snow 2nd January 2017

Its forecast to snow sometime today , hopefully .  We are going to visit Letna Hill and the Metronome this morning since we changed plans yesterday.  There are a few snow flakes fluttering down as we leave the hotel and we walk to our favorite cafe "Arcadia"  Fabulous hot chocolate in twelve varietys.

 After hot chocolate and a caramel waffle we are on our way, and its started snowing properly now.
We have walked along the river to the bottom of Letna Hill, and its really comind down now!

                                                                            Selfie time #1

                                                                     The "Metronome"

            What a fabulous view up the river with all the bridges.  you can see the heavy now!
                            shot with 100 - 400mm lens , and hard to keep snow off the lens  .

                                      It has eased off a bit now giving clearer conditions.

                                                                           Selfi #2  :)

                                                               Jan found a swing  lol

                         Good viewpoint from up here , must come back at dusk one evening.

                                                             Close up of the rooftops.

 We have walked around to the back of the castle , past the valley gardens below the bridge into the castle rear entrance.

 Having gone through the metal detector at security gate we are inside below the Church,  there is a christmas market here and Jan has mulled wine and we have curled chips.

                                                                  In The Castle square.

         In front of the main square looking over the city , our hotel is just below us somewhere .

        After a rest i have run down to Charles bridge for a quick shoot, leaving Jan back at the hotel.

 The sun is setting , with lovely light across the castle district.     a long exposure of 30 seconds  taken on the bridge looks wonderful :)

The rest of today will be in the next blog as have too many images  ............................
