I love Prague.
After many visits to the city, I was missing one “standard” shot. So, I bundled up in layers and set out on the evening of December 30th (2010). I walked through the Old Town to the Vltava river, over to Little Quarter and Kampa Island, and crossed back over the Vltava again on the Charles Bridge to the eastern shore.
I completely underestimated the cold, as I “rated” what I wore to be sufficient to about -5C/23F. As I discovered later, the air temperature was -10C/14F, even colder in the breezy windchill. By the end of my walkabout, my fingers were not happy at all. However, I was very satisfied with the photographs, one of which is shown below.
I made the photo above with the Canon EOS 450D camera, EF 50mm f/1.4 USM lens, and the following settings : 1/13s, f/2.8, ISO400, no tripod. This post is originally published on Fotoeins Fotopress (fotoeins.com).
