We sat along banks of the Vltave River, not far from the Charles Bridge, where we could see the Old Town Bridge tower, the sun was going down, the lights were coming on and it seemed like the perfect time and a perfect place to stop for a mug of mulled wine.
This hour of day the dark blue colour of the sky mixed with the warm glow of the street lights is one of the most beautiful times of day, of course this time of year, late fall, sunset happens about 4:30. I think that it is a perfect reminder to change gears and slow down.
As a photographer low light means long time exposures and a tripod, causing, dare I say forcing me to slow down and enjoy the view. In this image we can see the lights of the river boats streaking by, they become a blur of light with the long exposures and contrast to the sharp detail of the Old Town.
