Prague At Night
This was the dark of night. The only light came from the city lights. I was at the top of the Žižkov Television Tower, an oddity, if you may, that stands out in a city of ancient, traditional, and even Gothic buildings and architecture.
At any rate, that's where I was at almost 790 feet (the height of the tower) on the observatory level. Oddly enough, there's also a bar and restaurant there for, I think, private parties. I digress.
The observatory level is surrounded by glass. The glass has a patchwork of reflections coming from the bar, so taking this picture was NOT easy. To top that, not to blow my own horn or anything, I had to do multiple long exposure shots at different exposures in order pick up every speck of light in the city. Handheld. The knee makes a great (and cheap) tripod in these cases. Did I mention this was in the dead of night?
This picture is a mergence of 4 shots, one with little spots of light and at the other extreme, a completely blown out shot. Thank the photography geeks and creators for Photomatix and Photoshop!!
Prague is a beautiful city, as you can see. It's also quite progressive, an especially exemplary fact since it has spent most of its life battling other country leaders who wanted to rule it.
It's also called the City of a Hundred Spires. Even the modern buildings seem to have spires. And then there are the old churches, synagogues, cathedrals...spires and towers everywhere!
It's a most beautiful city.
