City of a Thousand Spires: Prague 2016 / by Martin Siggers

Prague is renowned as one of the great photographic cities of the world, and after my first visit there it's easy to see why. Largely untouched by military action during World War II, it remains a magnificent spread of medieval, renaissance and enlightenment architecture, crowned by its magnificent hillside castle and cathedral. packed full of back-alleys, hidden gems, and friendly people it's a must for any travelling photographer in my opinion.

Above is a brief sample of my latest week-long journey to the city, mostly comprised of shots hurriedly grabbed between sightseeing activities. As is custom for travel work, I took the Olympus O-MD E-M5 with me and it was once again a sterling performer, though I did occasionally yearn for the greater resolving power and dynamic range of the Nikons. Perhaps I'll look into an all-in-one travel lens and take the D600 next time. For now enjoy these shots, and if you're interested you can find a more comprehensive version on Flickr and Facebook
