Geotagging the photos

Maybe you noticed there is a small map after almost every photo I post here. When I started taking pictures I sometimes took so many I couldn’t remember where I took them. Some time ago I found a useful little app that helps me with that. It’s called GeotagPhotos and it’s available for iPhone or Android devices. They have a free version and also the paid one. The main advantage of the paid one is the ability to measure your location every minute (2, 5, 10 etc.) without you doing anything. The free version can’t do this and you have to manually press the button to save your position (which is kind of a hassle). I tried the free version first and then I decided to buy it. It’s only $3.99 so it won’t ruin anyone’s budget. To finish the tagging process: after you completed your photo trip you can upload the gpx file to their servers (and download it to your computer later) or you can set it up with your Dropbox and it will appear there. After that I take this file with the coordinates to the Lightroom and I let the program do its magic to tag all my photos with their locations. So if you have a similar problem, go check it out.

The Photo

I waited for more than an hour for the light to get just right. Sometimes it’s all about your patience, to wait just a little longer so the colours get to the point it can’t get any better:). Anyway, this is a small restaurant by the Charles Bridge from where you have a nice view of the river Vltava and the city itself.

Charles Bridge

My latest walk to this bridge was just yesterday. The conditions were great (I didn’t freeze:)) and this photo is what I had in mind.

If you want to get the similar mood in your pictures, this kind of colours are in the first 30-40 minutes after the sunset. Photographers call this the blue hour. For me it’s probably the most favourite time to shoot landscape photographs.

The Library

This is the building I haven’t photographed for a long time even though I live quite close to it. I guess sometimes we miss the nice places that are really close to us thinking that it’s better somewhere far away. Fortunately in this case I corrected my mistake.

Cold Sunset in Prague

Posted by on Mar 26, 2013 in Blue Hour, Canon EOS 60D, HDR, Prague, Sunset | 0 comments

It’s spring now officially however the weather does not think that:). It was quite nice last Sunday so I went for a walk. I came to this place from where you can see the river Vltava and the whole city around it. I stayed for almost an hour and waited for the right light to take this picture. I almost froze but it was worth it, wasn’t it?

Drakensberg At Its Best

Let me take you to the South Africa today. This sunset happened last summer in Drakensberg. Actually it was winter down there. The setting sun on the other side of the sky created this great colors which I want to share with you.

I have been reorganising disks in my computer and it took me longer than I expected. I finally managed to sort everything out and today I can show you another of the pictures I took in Belgium. I posted a similar photo but this one has a bit different processing on it.
