Krakow and its old main square at night

Krakow and its old main square at night 

Part of the main square in Krakow with St. Mary's Basilica with its twin towers. This taken at around 21.30, note how many tourist are still around in this momentary quite moment for me. In the left tower, high in the top windows a trumpeter plays a 'bugle call' on the hour every hour of the day and night. (I believe three people do that in shifts) This is done in succession from each compass point window so four trumpet calls per hour in reality and always a ready audience as the sound echos from the nearby other buildings. (Maybe a thing to note if you consider staying in one of the many hotels around this square.) Best viewed full size. See PiP for Cloth Hall view,

I too was surprised at how much these newly washed pavement stones reflected the lights. Glad you enjoyed the moment with me. Herb

Wonderful low-light photography. Beautifully composed in gorgeous light. I especially like the reflected light on the paving stones...........it really brings out the shapes and detail.

Herb Riddle has replied to Keith Burton
Howdy Keith - great to share such moments with you and I am happy that you like these r reflections. I have an idea that the stone had recently been washed but it was warm and it must have dried by me taking this so perhaps just sparkly clean :)

See you, Herb

Very much like this one Herb. The light on the towers is great but what catches my eye is the light on the ground reveling the curve of the paving stones,

All the best, Doug

Herb Riddle has replied to Doug Shepherd
Hi Doug, nice to see you again. A million miles from your beloved Scotland of course but still photographically exciting. Like you, the reflective cobble stones caught my eye too.

Best Wishes, Herb

Rabbit will enjoy that -lots of carrots things around - I think. Some of our family has just had a shot 5 day break there and thought it was marvellous too. History abounds. Enjoy.
