Tomás and Vashek are coming to take me to some nice sights but I cannot wait. Very early I went out for a small walk and had some luck with flowers. When Tomás and Vashek arrived my trousers and shoes where wet and muddy. Good signal!
Yes! Great sights and very good light. With the help of grad filters and polarizer I have seen some pics that maybe will work well. We have been trekking all day, first, for a good while we climbed for general views and forests at Rudolf and Wilhemina Rocks. Later we approached Kamenice river, where we had really photographic fun. Lots of river opportunities, as well as macros. As my priority is landscapes, I have enjoyed a lot of ‘entering the river’ (yes, dressed), everybody who passed stopped there to see me in fresh water wading without waders. A show!
But, the main thing is that the first cards kindly donated by SanDisk, are starting to get plenty of shots. Thanks also to Hi-Tec, for the boots and equipment! I’m not going to process the photographs while here, as it’s important to rest, and I didn’t bring my laptop, but later they will be added. Well, maybe tomorrow I will try some with Mr. Sojka’s computer and will have them sent if my connection works.
Tomorrow is the great day. Tomás will pick me up at 6 am to go to Prague for a press conference. The Press Department at the Ministry of Environment have been so kind to arrange it, and I have a short PowerPoint to make a presentation of the WWE project and my plans in this beautiful and kind country. Bit nervous? No, they are really friendly and the news is really fresh - as my legs in the river.
Tomorrow I have to remember asking my friends here for some of the funny pictures they took of me swimming with my camera. Same as Milán Radisics, but less prepared. Ah, yes! A salute to Niall Benvie. I remembered him and made two or three white backgrounds in his honour. It is getting colder here, a few degrees over zero. That reminds me as well of the Haarbergs, surrounded by a white desert. Good luck to all of them and greetings from Czech Republic.
Thanks for being there…
