Photographer's Note

I was up early that day, 5 o'clock in the morning just to catch the first rays of the sun on the Charles Bridge in Prague, being alone without the massive tourist crowds present on the bridge during the day. Charles Bridge crosses the river Vltava and was commenced in 1357. The bridge is 515m long and 9.5m long. The photo was shot towards the old town with the silhouette of the medieval Old Town Bridge Tower just to the right slight off-centre. Immediately to the left of the tower is the early Baroque style Church of St. Salvator. The building with the big cupola is the Church of St. Francis of Serafin, also built in early and high Baroque styles. The white building overlapping the church is the Monastery of the Cross. In the distance to the farthest left are the spires of the Tyn Cathedral.
