One Nice Shot

clock tower in pragueI walked along the Vltava River at sunset, from Vysehrad to Charles Bridge (Karlov Most), a distance of maybe 1.5 miles. The night was balmy after a 70-degree day under yellow sunshine. This was the second time I was out today, as I’m finally able to soak in some sunshine since Prague’s six-month winter finally ended. Ugh!

This morning I had a Czech language class at school, in which I’m making a bit of progress: pronunciation, pronouns and gender endings, and some adjectives and interrogatives. Our teacher, Sylvia, has advised we take it slow and let it sink in over three or six months, at which time she said we’ll probably be able to say things and understand some.

After class I wandered about, took a tram here and there, worked in a pair of shoes but now think I bought a half size too small, then walked up Petrin Hill for some more photography.

But tonight along the river was fantastic. I found a spot, finally to take some evening shots of Hradcansky all lit up. I rested the camera on a stone pedastal and monkeyed with the iso gage to get the right balance, then snapped the pick using timer mode. This is the result. You can see lots of today’s picture (now uploaded) at my flickr page.
