Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

Today, my photograph is of the iconic Montjuic Telecommunications Tower.

Barcelona built a number of structures on the Montjuïc Hill for the Olympics of 1992. This was one of the most eye-catching; it is a white, slender communications tower and was erected between 1989 and 1991 at the Anella Olímpica (Olympic Ring) - the complex where most of the sports facilities were built - to transmit television coverage of the Olympic Games.

The elegant tower soon became a symbol of the Olympics and the city of Barcelona.

I was fascinated by the structure and tried different viewpoints to try to get a good contre jour so the communications tower would appear to be lit, like the Olympic Flame.

I hope you enjoy this symbol of Barcelona as much as I did, Bev :-)
