Corcovado by johonbravo Corcovado by johonbravo
A 125 foot statue of Christ stands over 2300 feet in the air overlooking the city of Rio de Janeiro. Known as Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer), it is one of the most famous landmarks in Brasil, and was recently named one of the new 7 Wonders of the World. It can be seen from almost any part of the city of 11 million.

Brasil is a very "Christian" country, with over 70% claiming to be Catholic, and over 15% Protestant. That being said, the Christianity in the country is miles wide, but only an inch deep.

I took this at night. The backlighting comes from the city lights below. I didn't do any post-processing other than the frame & text.
