Macro photography at University Botanic Gardens in Nové Mĕsto, Prague

This more than 100 year old garden in Prague contains many fascinating trees, ponds and flowers. The enormous greenhouse is around 70 years old and fully restored. This is a nice opportunity for me to have a relaxing walk and practise my macro photography. The garden must be amazing in the summer when most flowers are in bloom.

Deze meer dan 100 jaar oude tuin in Praag is een verzameling van vele mooie bomen, vijvertjes en bloemen. De enorme serre die meer als 70 jaar oud is, werd volledig gerestoreerd. Dit is een uitstekende mogelijkheid voor een ontspannen wandeling en het oefenen van mijn macro fotografie. De tuin moet ongelooflijk zijn in de zomer als alle bloemen in bloei staan..

  1. Oh my goodness, this is an aspect of your photography I don't think you have shown before. You are a wonderful photographer, I think I could reach out and touch and smell the flowers. Such sharp clarity for macros! This is a place I could spend days in!!!

  6. Filip mooie macro's en close-ups. Geeft een indruk hoe mooi de tuin is. De moeite waard zo te zien. Fijne avond, Dietmut

    (overigens ik heb niet alle bergvolkeren in Orissa bezocht. Slechts vijf of zes. Helaas ben ik al een paar namen vergeten. Ik denk altijd dat onthoud ik wel, maar dat is niet altijd zo.)

  16. Your macro pictures are exquisite. I also like your picture with the path and lady on the bench – very nice. That botanic garden must offer many opportunities for photos. We’ll be in New York in a couple of weeks and I hope if the weather is good to go and visit their botanic garden, but I don’t have a macro lens unfortunately.

    Praha has been a long time in my travel-wish-list, and your images reinforce that someday I'll really travel there.
