Photographer's Note

Built in 1887 for the International Exhibition of the Philippine Islands, on the same year, the Crystal Palace is situated in the Parque del Buen Retiro de Madrid. Its structure is metal, and is fully covered by glass plates, hence its name. At his feet there is an artificial lake, with strange trees in the interior, cypress (Taxodium distichum), whose main characteristic is precisely that, that part of its trunk and its roots are under water.

Same place outside at...

Crystal Palace.
