The story behind the image

In 2006, I attended the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, for my employer, and it was my first time in this awesome, vibrant city. One evening, I hopped on a bus with a guided tour in the late afternoon.

The first stop of the tour was the Palau Nacional. Unfortunately, I had no time to visit the MNAC museum, because it was already quite late. But the light of the late afternoon, with sunset approaching, was perfect to capture the dome of the building.

Of course, the tiny P&S camera that I had brought was not good enough for a large shot, but I like the result anyway.
