19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
"Palacio de Cristal" (Cristal Palace) covered in snow during the Filomena Storm this year

To inaugurate this year, the universe brought to Spain this enormous snow storm that kept us inside for days. At the starting point of this weather abnormality I decided to head out with my camera to this famous park in Madrid called "El parque del retiro" (The retiro park) were this Chrystal palace lays. I had the marvellous opportunity of tacking this photo. This was a wise decision since every park closed the next day. This photo reflects that there is always something beautiful to see even in the worst situations.
