Have you ever had a big photographic wish ??!

I have long list of those and somewhere on the top were definitely these amazing frozen bubbles, that I had a great chance to capture during last days of 2016.

Did you get a chance to see or photograph them as well somewhere ?

Did Santa bring you what you wanted ?!?! If not, you might want to consider stopping by in his office in the far north ! ;)

"Where are you from ?" is probably one of the most common and most used questions you hear when you travel. My answer to that is : I was born in #CzechRepublic. Many people have some smaller or bigger difficulties to locate this relatively small #European country. When they know where #Czech Republic actually is, they often only heard of #Prague, outside of this beautiful capital city the general knowledge is rather limited.

For some time I felt bit guilty that I traveled the world and know so many countries way better than the one I was born in. I decided to change it this summer and explore parts of it. The result is in another night timelapse video. This time using one of my ultimate all time favorite pieces of classic music - #Vltava (#Moldau) from Czech composer #BedrichSmetana.

To make it even more relevant, I started and finished the timelapse with the sequence from a place called Smetanova vyhlidka - Smetana's view, wonderful location overlooking the river Vltava just before it enters Prague. There are several more sequences connected to Vltava river, such as confluence of the Elbe and the Vltava Rivers or several landscapes along the Labe river.

I hope you enjoy this journey with me !

One of the great locations to visit any time of the year, but especially now, when autumn colors start, is area of #SaxonSwitzerland National Park, #Germany. Stunning views of incredible rock formations is always joy to enjoy after demanding hike to get there. Many new photos from this spectacular place are now updated on the web.

If you wish to see all that #SächsischeSchweiz, #Deutschland has to offer through my lens, feel free to check out photos on :

Have you ever captured star trails ? If so, did you wonder what is the ideal time to let the camera work. Here is small sample to show you, how the result looks with different time length together with small time-lapse sequence to show you how the night changed during that period.

Have you ever wonder what is the ideal time for capturing star trails. What is the longest time you have ever waited for ? As I was on the "hunt" for Perseid Meteor Shower, I left the camera going as long as possible, in a hope that I would capture as many "falling stars" or rather giant burning meteors as possible. I picked the iconic landmark of Bohemian Paradise - the ruins of Trosky castle built on two volcanic rocks. Unfortunately those 2 p...

Istanbul is definitely in my TOP 10 favorite cities around the world. It is a wonderful mix of cultures, great location along the sea with so many wonderful places to explore. Those latest events in Turkey are not the happiest ones and I hope the situation will improve soon enough. Many new photos from this beautiful city have been added on in the ‪#‎Istanbul‬ gallery.

As today is 21st of Sept, it means that from now on, days will become shorter and night becomes longer for the next few months. This brings great opportunity to spend more time under night sky.

I've put together time-lapse video from my various trips around the world. Travel with me around the world to see how night looks in various locations, might it be remote Mongolian gers or Dracula castle in Romania. Some of the fascinating desert landscapes of Middle East are wonderful locations to capture under night sky. Some of the older sequences were captured just for star trails photo, but I have used them as well. In the list below the video you can see all those various locations and if there is star trail photo as well, I added the link.

I hope you'll enjoy this trip with me.

In the bright light of city lights we often forget how amazing night sky can be. I have seen my own Moon shadow many times, but every-time I notice it, I am simply…

Just a friendly reminder that there is gonna be a peak in the Perseid Meteor Shower next few days. Did you pick some great dark location to capture it ? I had some last minute changes in my schedule and I had to improvise. Finally I picked very scenic area called Český ráj, in English - Bohemian Paradise. Where else to read my long list of wishes every-time there is a "falling star" than in Paradise ;) Now I just have to hope and pray for the clear sky !

What are your plans, where are you going to capture this special time of the year.
The Perseid meteor shower returns in all its glory between August 11th and 12th, 2016. Here are the best places, times and tools to see it.

Travel & Landscape Photography from over 90 Countries around World ~ www.LucieDebelkova.com
Introduction
Lucie Debelkova Travel & Landscape Photography from over 90 countries around the world, particularly from Middle East region - Yemen, Iran, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Syria, Jordan and others. Large collections from Asia (from far and distant Mongolia to super modern HongKong) & Europe (from historical marvels of Prague to the most northen point of Europe - North Cape - where the sun never sets during few months a year).
 
The biggest selection of my work can be always found on my personal web :

Philosophy of Photography

My philosophy is to take positive photographs highlighting the best a place has to offer, whether that is the vibrancy of the landscapes, the architectural grandeur of ancient monuments or modern architecture, the warmth and friendliness of the people or the magic of my favorite part of day - Twilight - the Blue hour.

The blue hour, coming from a "French expression "l'heure bleue," refers to twilight, the period each morning and evening where there is neither full daylight nor complete darkness. The time is considered special because of the quality of the light."

I enjoy capturing places in an eye-catching and colourful way; from the very old traditional or very modern places of the Middle East region to bustling backstreets of Asia to the spectacular cities of Europe. My collection of images focused primarily on low light scenes; from iconic travel destinations to lesser known places and the people who inhabit them.

Compositionally I aim for clarity and often simplicity to communicate my ideas and look for balance wherever possible. I seek out spectacular and vivid light to create a sense of wonder. Colour is a tonic to me and something I actively seek out.

The photographs on this site show all the success I have had with my images but none of the failures. For every sucessful trip where there has been good light there a 5 times as many that produce very little in the way of images. Landscape & travel photography is hard work and requires a significant amount of time and dedication.
