Nighttime, and Madrid is just getting started

gran via madridCalle Alcala and the start of the Gran Via, on a cold winter’s night in Madrid. The same evening I took this image, I took this one a little earlier, while waiting for dusk. It stumped quite a few people. I wasn’t sure anybody would get it, and they might not have without the hints I left in the comments! Both were taken from the observation deck of the Palacio de Correos in the heart of the city. Photo ©Mike Randolph

    Beautiful picture! What is the clock tower on the upper right?

    Thanks Mike, thanks Beth. julvic, the building in the upper right with the iconic red clock is the Telefonica building. When it was built, in 1929, it was Europe’s tallest building. For more information, check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telefonica_Building
