Boat Traffic Under the Prague Castle at Dusk ~ Prague, Czech Republic

    Newer Older

    View Large On Black

    This is sure one the most beautiful classic vistas in Europe. Not only historic but romantic as well. Every evening tens of locals and tourists stand by the Vltava river to admire yet another sunset and stay there for long minutes to see how sky turns darker and gets into a strong contrast with the lights pointed at Prague Castle, Basilica of St. Vitus and Charles Bridge. Reflections on the Vltava are just icing on the cake.

    Of all the photos I took during the two evening shoots I tend to prefer this kind of tight compositions more. Wide views are sure nice but longer focal length emphasized the majesty of that beautiful historical architecture more.

    Many tourists take part in the evening boat trips to experience this beauty directly from the Vltava river. One boat was just passing by when I tripped the shutter and created nice dynamic light streaks.
