Everybody loves a castle and Prague Castle didn’t disappoint me. Having been told that they turn the lights on at night giving you a spectacular view, I parked myself on Charles Bridge and watched as the sun set and the lights came on illuminating the great Castle like some sort of fairytale.
My camera cannot do the view justice so you will all just have to make the trek to Prague and see for yourself with your own eyes.
I love night photography, nice capture.
Thanks mate, I think I stood there for a couple of hours waiting for it to get dark. I was also impromptu photographer for some other tourists that wanted a photo with the palace in the background.
Just gorgeous!!! Nighttime photography is always so challenging for me.
Thanks Andi. My little camera struggles at night time but I lack the skill to handle anything more than a point and shoot.
If you want something that doesn’t require the skills of a DSLR but offers a bit more oomph, I’d suggest taking a look at the Canon SX series. I too am not skilled enough to manage anything complicated, but it’s a powerful camera with plenty of pre-sets. Might be worth a look.
Hey Chris, I’ve not looked at the Canon stuff for awhile as my Panasonic Lumix TZ5 (TZ15 depending on country) is only a couple of years old. It does great as a point and shoot with 10x optical zoom etc but it suffers out of normal everyday conditions.
i guess am going to prague
