River Reflections in Prague


Both pictures are of the same stretch of the Vltava River in Prague. This is my entry for Skywatch Friday and Weekend Reflections.
Weekend Reflections is a meme for photographs that have reflections. It's really fun and it's every weekend from Friday 11am eastern standard time to 11pm Sunday EST. Reflections are everywhere it's up to us to find them.

  18. By the way...I was in Balboa Island today and saw the house you photographed with the moon and sun! I was surprised! Now I wish I had taken a picture to post just to give you a surprise...darn!

    I wanted to take my little grandson on the ferry, but he fell asleep...just like a 2 year old! So, I skipped the ferry and just drove all the way around to the Balboa Pier area. He woke up and had a good time playing in the sand and chasing birds, just like a 2 year old!

  19. Fantastic pictures, yes!But I must admit that today, the reflection is not the thing I'm looking at.
    I'm just enjoying the beauty of the place. And I've the feeling that this town is really a very romantic place!!

  30. I love the way the swan has been transforeìmed in the reflection, into something completely ugly...like a truth-telling mirror. Prague. Now there's a place I'd like to see one day.
