A Prague spotter, frozen to bone, caught doing winter aviation photography at one of the most distant (300mm or better needed here) spots in Prague (a hill south of the runway 24, to be removed in the future); with a 767 of Delta (reg. N191DN) being in the focus during some really cold winter afternoon.

Is the hill being removed to stop the spotters ?

Fortunately this is not the reason ;-) The hill is man made - a temporary storage of soil coming out of the nearby new motorway roadworks.... there is planned a 2nd runway very close to the hill, the runway will be crossing the motorway (motorway under). Once the work is started (still not clear when) the hill will be removed (material reused).
