Sedlec Ossuary

While in Prague we decided to have a day trip out to Sedlec Ossuary (http://www.kostnice.cz/. Situated in Kutna Hora about 50 minutes from Prague by train the ossuary contains hundreds of human bones. Over the years these have been piled into huge pyramids or turned into very large sculptures. The chandelier in the middle apparently contains at least one of each bone in the human body. A raven even appears pecking out the eye of a Hussite warrior (here)Had a lot of fun playing with flash for these. My cheap little ebay Remote came in handy as I could dump the flash wherever I wanted and then shoot from another corner.

Unfortunately we made a slight mistake on the way back and ended up taking just over 2 hours on a small local train stopping at every station it could, and then coming into the wrong station in Prague
