Photographer's Note

A "postcard" photo today with this famous Rio landmark. Most people recognize the famous "Cristo Redentor" not only a symbol for Christianity but also a piece of beautiful Art Deco from 1931. A 30 meter tall statue is a highly recognizable landmark and personally i think that Cristo Redentor looks best at dusk, when it is illuminated by floodlights.
