Danish band Efterklang performance in Archa Theatre in Prague on February 15th 2020:

Little flashback from last year… Some drone shots from the coastline of beautiful Isle of Skye. It is quite difficult to fly a drone there as strong winds and wind gusts and also heavy rain make the flying sometimes impossible.

British cult band New Order kicked off their 2019 european tour in Prague. It is hard to believie that it was their firs ever performance in Prague.

Here are some photos from the gig:

While filming a feature movie around the area and staying overnight here it was almost no brainer to try to fly the drone around this biggest dam in the Czech republic – Orlík.

The video below was filmed on DJI Mavic Air and edited and graded in FinalCut Pro X.

The biggest cargo airplane – the ukrainian Antonov An-225 Mryia arrived to Prague to carry 117 tonnes generator to Australia.

An-225 is powered by six turbofan engines and is the longest and heaviest airplane ever built, with a maximum takeoff weight of 640 tonnes (1,410,000 lb). It also has the largest wingspan of any aircraft in operational service. The single example built has the Ukrainian civil registration UR-82060. A second airframe was partially built; its completion was halted because of lack of funding and interest.

When seen in person this plane is really huge and it was really nice to be able to get to the airport and take a few pictures from the apron just a few minutes before scheduled departure.

Shortly after 6.00 am Mryia took off and this view was also impressive. You can check the take-off on following pictures.

We were shooting a TV documentary in Šumava national park last week. At the end of the second day we experienced this beautiful sunset over the mountains…

Invalidovna was built from 1731-1737 as a dormitory for war invalids (veterans) by Kilián Ignác Dienzenhofer. Its model was Les Invalides, a building for veterans inaugurated in Paris in 1679. Only a ninth of the original design was ever completed. At most, about 1200 inmates lived there. In 1935, all inhabitants moved to another “invalidovna”, at Hořice, and the building was used by the Czech army. After this, it was used as an army archive. The building was damaged by a large flood in 2002, and most of the archive materials was destroyed. The building currently awaits an expensive reconstruction

I went for a location scouting this week and experienced quite a surprise: there is a well preserved old volcano not far from Prague! It’s a relic of a Tertiary stratovolcano, 413m MSL. Nice place with great views…

Take a look for yourself:

Today we had a first snowfall in Prague so it was a good time for a walk. This picture was taken in Novy Svet – quiet street close to Prague castle.
