Yesterday afternoon we visited the Temple of Debod in Madrid.
At present, the Temple of Debod, stands at the summit of the mountain from Principe Pio. Lift was ordered by the king of Meroe Nubian Adijalamani about 2200 years ago. Originally it was a chapel in the town of Dedod, south of Egypt, in honor of the god Amon, the father of all gods. Has expanded to also devoted to the goddess Isis.
In 1968 the temple gave Debod the Spanish government and its people in regard to his efforts in helping to safeguard the temples of Abu Simbel. The church went to the port of Alexandria, and from there came to Valencia on June 18, 1970. From there he was transported to Madrid to start its reconstruction, which was a odisea.

La luz esta preciosa y hay mucho contraste entre los ruinas y lo que hay alrededor. Me gusta mucho el reflejo y la linea de las estructuras.

A beautiful picture of this Egyptian temple in the heart of Spain. The reflections are splendid but I specially like the contrast between the warm colours of the temple and the cold blue of the water and the sky.
Best regards, Paul

I know this place well and know it's not easy to get a decent photo from there and you just found a beautiful light (natural and artificial), mixing the blue tones of the afternoon's end gold ones from the artifical light.
The reflections on water are also important for the success of the photo.
