A Bridge Over A Vltava Branch

February 2008

In Prague, the Vltava splits here and there to form islands that, contrary to what appears here, are heavily built out with homes and other buildings. Some of the buildings were once mills, and they still have their water wheels that were used to power machinery inside.

But here, looking south into the winter sun, the overgrowth of trees, grass and shrubs gives an appearance of a country stream from, perhaps, a different time. One would not be surprised to see a horse pulling a wagon across the bridge.

I used #LightroomCC and #PhotoshopCC along with a few other adjustment layers and a round trip to #TopazDetail to arrive at this rendition. There really was a lens flare in the original photo, but I did enhance it a bit in Photoshop.
