I vastly underestimated the size of this place, and what a place! Planning only to spend a few hours here it was clear that it needed a whole day ... and comfy shoes! Not much opportunity to get just the right shot, just at the right time. Photographers with tripods came from nowhere.. just for sunset... this place comes alive then. No way have I come close to doing this justice, fabulous place and fabulous city.

oh it is! Saw it from the air when flying in and it was incredible then but on visiting, the sheer brilliance of the architect is astounding. My only disappointment was that being winter I guess there was lots of work going on around doing more work to a new lake and the pools opposite the hemisphere were not full.

Slightly taken aback or rather delighted by the fact that not one security guard stopped or questioned anyone with a camera, free to take pictures inside and outside the structures, amazing Smile

Beg to differ. Wouldn't know how else you could have done it justice. Excellent capture.

So far, terrorists in Spain have had a clear preference for cars and trains, that might have something do with it...

Thanks everyone Smile

There was security Conrad, security scans of bags on entry and very visible and alert guards but no one stopped anyone from taking pictures, for that I'm very grateful because it would have spoiled the whole visit.
