Summer dawn over the Vltava : Prague, Czech Republic - 606am, 28 Jul 2013, fotoeins.com

Fotoeins Friday: morning threshold over the Vltava in Prague

A morning on any clear day seems to have the power to unveil itself, as the gentle dark of night cedes its cloak to a brand new golden dawn. That’s what you, I, or anyone will see from the east flank of the Vltava river in Prague, with the buildings of Malá Strana (Lesser Quarter) on the other side and Hradčany (Prague Castle) on the gentle western rise. A proclamation of an eternal Czech nation also rises with the new day, the message which I’m sure the legendary Libuše and the Přemyslid people would approve.

This is merely one of countless reasons why I’m in love with Prague

Just after 6am on 28 July 2013, I made this image at Křižovnické náměstí (Square of the Knights of the Cross), at the eastern or Old Town approach to Charles Bridge in Prague, Czech Republic. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-5kF.

My Prague: autumn colours by morning light

I’m happy to be inside the Czech capital of Prague whenever the opportunity arises. With great timing of an early-October visit and a very positive weather forecast, I’m awake well before scheduled sunrise, and I stumble out to Karlův most (Charles Bridge) to catch the light of sunrise on the city. Seeing and photographing the warm sunrise glow on the old parts of the city makes the early wakeup call worthwhile. Prague is effectively an “open-air museum”; the warm colours at sunrise combined with the changing colours of the surrounding deciduous canopy magnify the visual intensity.

And no, I don’t think there’s enough orange or red to cover this UNESCO World Heritage Site
