Snapshot of Prague Part 10

Hi folks.
Well that tower with the clock I keep going on about, It was getting late so we purchased a couple of tickets to climbed to the top and have a look at the view as the sun went down. It was very difficult to take pictures from the top of the tower as it was very narrow to walk around the top.  I could only use the tripod as a monopod to take the pictures press it against the retaining wall and as the light was fading we spent well over an hour up there. I hope you think it was worth it. Old Town Square as it started to get dark and the mist was falling with its market stalls. Below in the square the Jan Hus Memorial that was unveiled in 1915 to commemorate the 500 anniversary of his Martyrdom and of course. the Christmas tree.

Across the square and then lit up as it got dark with the Christmas markets below.

As night fell, I liked this one and printed this one A3 and it is now on the wall at home.

Back on the ground and a close up of that tree with the clock tower behind.

Walking back to the hotel after a really good but cold day passed the Powder House in blog to take it again at night.

Lastly a close up the that Mosaic panel.

Back to the hotel for a well earned rest.

As it is nearly Christmas I and Sue would like to wish you all a very happy time.

Best regards, Mike
