Photographer's Note

The Ciutat de les arts i ciences or the city of arts and sciences in Valencia is one of the leading tourist spots in Valencia. The complex stretches approximately 3 kilometers, from Palau des Arts up to the end which is the Oceanographic.

In this photo you can see the (left to right)
L'Hemisf鑽ic - inspired in the shape of the eye, this infrastructure has an Imax theater, Planetarium and Laserium inside.

Next to it is the El Museu de les Ci鈩cies Prncipe Felipe an interactive museum of science ehich resembles the skeleton of a whale.

The tallest harp-like infrastructure is the El Puente de l'Assut de l'Or the bridge that connects the south side with Minorca Street, whose 125 meters high pillar makes it the highest point in the city.

Behind it is the L'agora- a covered plaza in which concerts and sporting events are held. Last October, L'agora served as the home for the 2010 ATP World-Tour Tournament.

and on to the right is the L'umbracle (not enough shown) - a landscaped walk with plant species indigenous to Valencia. It harbors in its interior The Walk of the Sculptures, an outdoor art gallery with sculptures from contemporary artists and a dinosaur museum if i'm not mistaken.

Shot was hand-held, taken around 5 am in the morning.

Here's another view of the Photo and the other infrastructures at the complex:
