The picture was taken at Cuatro Torres Business Area, Madrid, Spain. It is the resulting image of stacking 60 single 30-seconds frames through a Canon EOS 450d (Rebel XSi) and a 18mm lens. Polaris is near the edge of the skyscraper.

Cuatro Torres Business Area (CTBA) is a business park near the Paseo de la Castellana, Madrid (Spain), on the grounds of the former Ciudad Deportiva of Real Madrid. Initially known as the Madrid Arena, the consortium of the four towers owners decided to adopt a new corporate image for the set and the name Cuatro Torres Business Area. This business park consists of four skyscrapers that are the tallest buildings in Madrid and Spain. The four buildings are the Torre Caja Madrid, Sacyr Vallehermoso Tower, Torre de Cristal and Torre Espacio. The first is the highest in Madrid and Spain with its 250 meters high.

The skyscrapers are home offices. However Sacyr Vallehermoso Tower also houses a hotel and at the top of the Torre de Cristal is a garden. Each tower has several floors of parking underground, and road access to the business park to avoid traffic crashes in the area. The construction of these four buildings began in 2004 and in late 2007 and early 2008 were completed.
