Photo: View from the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona
Photograph by Nicholas Khoo Kok Leong, 
This picture was taken from the top of the Sagrada Familia cathedral in Barcelona. The view was breathtaking, as the ledge is very low and the wind was blowing strongly that day. It's quite a scary experience! This was a very lucky shot, as it was handheld on a two-second timer, with three exposure shots taken at the same time.

Corrida, Barcelona, 2009

Photo: Lightning strike in northern Spain
Photograph by Brendan Fraser,
An extremely lucky shot. I stopped on the road to take a photo of the mountain above the village of Santa Linya in northern Spain. The sun was shining in the valley in front, and a dark storm was approaching from behind. The photo was taken at 1/250th second, which is quite quick, capturing the exact moment of the lightning strike. I never even saw the lightning, as the camera shutter was open for that exact moment. This was the only lightning strike of the storm.

Photo: Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao
Photograph by Victor Van Keuren, 
The Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao is a wonderful structure to photograph. Frank Gehry's buildings are so organic. As I was photographing here, the fog generators came on, which added a very surreal effect. I converted these images to Tritones to enhance the industrial 'feel'.

Photo: Sagrada Familia interior
Photograph by Stephen Chao,
This is a shot of the interior of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. The church has been under construction for over a hundred years and is expected to take at least a decade more. This picture gives a small sense of the extraordinary architectural patterns used in its design—but it is a sight best experienced firsthand.

Photo: Horse and dog in window
Photograph by Desislava Petrova,
As I walk by the marvelous village of Monachil, situated in the skirts of Sierra Nevada, Spain, I meet old people sitting outside their houses, enjoying the sunset and gossiping. So do their pets, too.

In the evenings lots of people gather in the Font Màgica del Montjuïc for the spectaculer view of lights, music and fountains.

Photo: Graffiti in Barcelona
Photograph by Michael Colwell, 
Barcelona, Spain. I especially appreciate the graffiti artist's sensitivity to the Art Nouveau woodwork.

Photo: Woman inside the Atocha Station Memorial
Photograph by James Azure, 
A young woman reads the names of those lost in the 2004 Madrid train bombings. This room is completely soundproof. The silence, along with the contrast of the deep blue walls is an experience of which I've never had before in my life. Taken inside the Atocha Station Memorial in Madrid, Spain, on May 21, 2010.

Photo: An old mine
Photograph by Mario Sanchez,
This photo was taken in an old mine of silver in San Quintan, Spain. It was almost the sunset, so I had to use a tripod and a medium-time exposure speed. The colours are natural but slightly oversatured.

Photo: Lake in mountains
Photograph by Daniel Cruz, 
Asturias, Spain

Photo: Celebrations in Valencia
Photograph by Cantillo David,
Celebrations in Valencia city, in Spain. Devils carry fire in their hands. A terrible fight takes place in the street between heaven and hell.

Photo: Bulls at sunset
Photograph by Antoine Beauchamp,
In the south of Spain, savage bulls wait for the day of the "corrida" as the sun goes down and keeps burning the dusty land.
