Most photos from Prague are taken from exactly the opposite site of the river. The place from which I took this photo however is rarely visited by tourists. A missed opportunity, just like most photographers pack up their stuff as soon as the blue hour finished – but why?
I must admit, recently I fell for the temptation of the blue hour myself. But some places look breathtaking even in total darkness. Luckily I found still some unedited photos from my last trip to Prague, so that I could try my editing skills on another night scene. Once again that was so much fun that in the next weeks I will spend more time on long nights outside with my cam… and I can’t wait to go back to Prague next month!
This photo shows the Charles Bridge in Prague, with the guard tower on the side of the historic old town. It’s the old, traditional way to get from the royal side of the city to the civil old town.
