New Year’s Eve | Prague, Czech Republic

Fireworks over the Rudolfinum in Prague making it look like New Year's Eve in the Czech city at Vltava river.
2013 has been an awesome year but it’s going to end now. What kind of photo should I choose now for the end of the year? Yeah, obviously some fireworks!

I wish you all a Happy New Year and don’t abandon your New Year’s resolutions tomorrow already. Thank you for all the support throughout the whole last year and I hope we stay in touch also in 2014!

Regarding the photo I have to be honest – it wasn’t taken on New Year’s Eve. I captured the fireworks over the Rudolfinum in Prague rather randomly. I just prepared to take photos from the Charles Bridge when the firework started. Only turning around the camera and not changing any settings, I took some photos. Fortunately, I did so as the fireworks only lasted for a few seconds.
