Fotoeins Friday: Autumn morning on Prague’s Petrin hill

Orange light during the “golden hour” provides an exceptionally warm glow over fall foliage. Looking out from Prague’s Charles Bridge to the western flank of the Vltava river, Petřín hill seems to come alive with “fire”, dressed with the leaves’ changing colours. There aren’t many people around at this early morning hour, and aside from a few joggers and other visitors, the view belongs entirely to me. Kampa Museum on Kampa Island appears in the foreground to the lower left. The medieval defensive wall, the Hunger Wall, appears at top-centre in the background, running down diagonally to the lower-left.

I made the image above from the Charles Bridge on 7 October 2009 with the Canon EOS450D (XSi), EF 70-300 zoom-lens, and the following settings: 1/200s, f/11, ISO200, 70mm focal length (112mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-5Of.
