Photographer's Note

Plaza de Castilla Madrid.
I don't know why the golden tower was not built to be in between the towers. The skyscrapers behind (Quatro Torres) are much higher but are several km up the road.

I was lucky to be able to take this photo. I came out of the underground station and turned to stare at this magnificent sight not realising that there was a tiny little step and I started to fall. My first worry was that my Nikon D90 and 18-200 were around my neck and the lens was bound to hit the ground first. Anyway I somehow managed to make my knee, hand and then the corner of my camera touch the ground - saving the rest. The camera has a scratch and my knee and hand were sore for a few days.

Plaza de Castilla, Madrid.
Je ne sais pas pourquoi, mais la tour dore n'a pas t construite au plein milieu des tours. Les grattes ciels en arrire plan (Quatro Torres) sont bien plus hautes mais se trouvent plusieurs km plus loin.

J'avais de la chance pouvoir prendre cette photo. En sortant de la station mtro, je me suis retourne pour admirer cette magnifique vue ne voyant pas que j'allais louper une petite marche et j'ai commenc tomber. Mon premier souci tait mon Nikon D90 et objectif 18-200 qui se trouvaient autour de mon coup. J'ai quand-mme russi atterrir d'abord sur mon genou, ma main puis le coin de mon appareil - pargnant le reste. L'appareil a une gratignue et mon genou et ma main m'ont fait mal pendant plusieur jours.
