Back in Prague next Christmas. Until then...

Prague Charles Bridge

PRocessed with Flypaper Textures (August painterly)

A recent trip to Prague; I was blessed with -15C temperatures, snow and lots of tame swans. I like photos of animals to be as natural and spontaneous as possible, which is preciesly why I didn't balance pieces of bread in my lens hood to encourage the swans to come closer.

 

Camera settings: f4, 1/1000sec, ISO100, shot handheld at 24mm.

 

Processing was done using Lightroom and Photoshop. Sadly, the original picture had a completely wonky horizon; when I straightened this it cropped a lot of the water from the bottom right. I fixed this by using Photoshop's content-aware fill procedure. Sharp eyes will notice the water looks a little unnatural in the bottom-right, but given that it only took a few clicks I'm very impressed with Photoshop. I used Lightroom to crop to 16:10, increase the blue and orange channels to make the beak and sky stand out a little, and increased the clarity to bring out some of the detail.

 

To get to this location head to Charles Bridge, in Prague. It’s one of the main landmarks and very easy to find. Head over to the west side of the bridge (away from the main town and towards the castle). When you get to the end of the bridge take a right turn (before the small underpass) and head down some steps next to a pub. Follow the path and stay on the path that runs parallel to the river (the river will be out of sight behind buildings) and keep going for about 3 minutes until you see an opening on the right with a tree where you can walk down and feed the swans. If you walk past a statue of two well-endowed people urinating then you’re on the right track.

 

This area is actually visible from Charles Bridge, so take a look from there to get your bearings. All in all, quite easy to find.

.. is the district of the city of Prague, Czech Republic, surrounding the Prague Castle.

 

The castle is said to be the biggest castle in the world at about 570 meters in length and an average of about 130 meters wide. Its history stretches back to the 9th century. St Vitus Cathedral is located in the castle area.

 

Most of the district consists of noble historical palaces. But there are also many other attractions for visitors: romantic nooks, peaceful places and beautiful lookouts.

Lovely rich colours of Prague.

Catching up. Sorry if comments slow.

This photo was taken a few years ago on a pre-Christmas trip to one of my best top destinations ever, beautiful Prague... It is not only that my Grandmother was a Czech but the City is so well-fraught with wit, this Slavic spirit that makes both Slavic and non-Slavic visitors alike feel like home...Added by famous second-to-none Bohemian humour (just remember My Sweet Little Village by Jiří Menzel nominated for the Academy Award, or Jaroslav Hašek's satire The Good Soldier Schweik which is the most translated novel of Czech literature) not to mention some of the most impressive pieces of architecture, numerous theaters and squares providing venues for jazzers playing in the open-air, teamed with the world-renowned beer, and greasy and unhealthy but extremely delicious noodles with bacon bits, this is a feeling no one should miss experiencing ...

 

Having purchased my Canon EOS 550D just a couple of months previously, little did I know then what proper night photography was. I just stood there fascinated by the scene and thrilled to witness one of the world's most photographed sights best known for being the location from the first Mission Impossible movie. If I hadn't been a total photographic beginner then, I'd never have dared take this photo in such a lighthearted and easy going way and, of course, without a tripod (still don't have one :)...and it turns out I'd got a beginner's luck...Well, I took it anyway, and now I'm glad I did because whenever I see it I feel like going there again...and now i do have one reason more to do so...and delight in that all around at-home-like feeling once again...:)

 

Key word: mission impossible.:).. Cheers, my friends!

The Charles Bridge over the river Vltava is definitely one of the most beautiful places in Prague.
