Amelia this is a lovely scenic shot, well done!

I am a wee bit confused though.....is it really a water wheel?

It looks just like it is a wooden wheel, even on full zoom!

I think the ghosts have at last disappeared from the stats Nick. The stats - as a matter of interest - are all done in graphical form! What a ... how shall I say this ... waste of Pano time :)

Thanks for the button pushing though :)

It's a bit like me Bonnie Lad, it works very slowly. There are some drips coming from it which are just about visible on the top right of the wheel :))

Maybe when the river Vtalva is in full spate, it moves more quickly.

Ca canny noo, Amelia

Hello David, I'm pleased that you liked the Prague shots, it is a golden city over-run with tourists - difficult to post an original photo I've found :)

Warm wishes, Amelia

Cracking shot Amelia. It's a very powerful image and there is something about waterwheels that attracts everyone. Is it (or was it ) powering a mill or a workshop or something?

Beautiful photo Amelia! Sorry for my long absence! I'm gradually working myself back into the land of the living!! ;-) It will take me some time to catch up with everyone. But this one I love!!

Neat shot Amelia ... I love stuff like this ... you would like some of the old paddle steamers that they have on the Murray River here and here All the best from Sandy ;)

DRIPS you say? I wonder if that is where I originate from?

Amelia Royan on October 5, 2010

Thanks Jeff. Unfortunately it is a bit over-exposed, but I wanted to keep the details of the wheel. I have no idea about the history here, but I will try to find out. When the Vltava is flowing quickly, the wheel probably works much better, but I doubt it does anything worthwhile now except to catch the eyes of the 1000s of tourists :))

Cheers, Amelia

Hi Paula, it's great to see you back! I love the love comment. And here's hoping that you'll continue to get back into the land of the living :)))

Cheers, Amelia

I was intrigued because it has a platform that allows you to walk alongside it...or perhaps that is closed to the public. Now I see the drops of water...they are going inside the wheel instead of off the paddles. Beautiful shot with the canal curving off into the distance!
