Big

In Madrid, one of the original “gates” of the ancient city stands imposingly in a Plaza surrounded by flowers.  By day, it is a massive marble structure inscribed with the name of Carlos V on the top, but at night, it becomes a glowing beacon.  I love the way the night illumination softens the harsh glare of  the daytime sun.

This view is taken towards the Gran Via, one of the main streets of Madrid, and you can see the “Metropolis” building through the arches in the distance.
