Powder Gate Redo

I ventured to the top of the Powder Gate during my first trip to Prague, so I wasn’t planning on doing it again this time… but… after breakfast one day, I noticed how beautiful the sky was… and being only around the corner from the Gate, I couldn’t resist a quick trip to the top.

I’m so glad I did it. Even though the scenery is the same, my original photos had a dreary, overcast sky. Not only did I get a “redo” of this gorgeous view, I had an amazing time soaking in the scenery.

Sometimes I worry that when returning to a city I’ve visited before, it won’t live up to the memories. For this trip to Prague at least – and even this trip to the top of the Powder Gate – that was definitely not the case.

I had to get a little too close to some crunchy spiders for my liking to get these shots, but I guess they deserve to enjoy a nice view too.

I would say that Prague is the most beautiful city I’ve ever seen, but I don’t think that’s fair to the others. I felt like I stepped into a fairy tale when I arrived, so unless I’m comparing it to Gondor or wherever Cinderella lives (neither of which have I visited, just to be clear) it’s in a category all on it’s own.

Filled up over the centuries with beautiful architecture as far as the eye can see, Prague is a breathtaking site from above. These are some of my favorite shots from high up in the Powder Tower and Prague Castle. Up high or down on street level though, it’s such a gem. I loved getting lost in it’s magic.
