The Needles of Cancho Gordo, Sierra de La Cabrera.
On full screen you can just see a smudge on the horizon near the centre and in between two prominent spires. This is the Cuatro Torres (four towers) complex in Madrid, the tallest buildings in Spain. I wanted to capture Madrid in the 'window' but no luck. That is a challenge for another day!
Soler. A very Spanish composer. Sight and Sound: his famous fandango but on the piano not the harpsichord.

Normally you can't see them at all due to the pollution in the air over Madrid and they are a long way off, so it's not surprising, really! Thank you, Roland.
