Incoming night

Sun was already down but reflected remaining light prepared best out of contrast on icy contours. Finding right foreground was hard though. Some areas were too scattered while others were unreachable or simply trampled. I found the best place just above Luční hut with a view to incoming dark night and Sněžka mountain. 7 stitched shots.

Night in the wilderness

When the skies are clear and the Moon is below the horizon it is still possible to experience really dark nights even in the middle of Europe. On those nights the Milky Way is not just noticeable but all its details clearly visible by the naked eye. Accompanied by the sounds of the forest (squirels, deer, owls) it is pure magic.


I usually do not like cliché locations where everyone takes the same shot over and over again but then there is this view of the Prague castle - the most classical one. One of those views where everything is just right in terms of composition to the point when you just can not resist to take the shot again... this time with Sigma 60mm which is absolute beast of a lens! This shot is quite cropped but the sharpness is exceptional and the stars around lights are quite nicely resolved too.
