The fans of football are asking me to post more pictures from Brazil and the World Cup and of course this picture is dedicated to all who cannot be here to enjoy this magnificent event!
I have taken many pictures but I will not post more because there are some members of TE that are already tired of seeing my pictures from the Maracană...
This picture is not a quality picture because it is taken from the higher point of the Corcovado mountain and that morning was a very foggy and hazy day.
But for sure, soon, it will be a great documentary picture for the fact that the little Maracană, right after the Cup, it will be demolished and only the big Stadium will stay.
What can I say about yesterday's game between Brazil and Colombia? It was a very dramatic and remarkable game between two teams who have a great tradition and history in the football Hall of Fame.
The Stadium was packed, so very colorful, so very festive and beautiful! Fans from both sides were cheering for their team but all together they were part of a unique and amazing fiesta that started way before the game and so far it has not ended..
I have to share with you that 6 hours before the game the Avenida Atlántica in Rio is closed as well as all transportation around the Stadium..nothing moves except the Metro.
Another thing that impressed me, is that when Brazil is playing all public offices such as the Post Office, are closing 3 hours before the game starts, so that they can all go to watch the game.
There is a TV playing and showing the World Cup matches everywhere, in every yard, in every muddy road, in every neighborhood, in every corner of every city!!
Last night there was a huge set up at the Copacabana Beach in order to celebrate the victory of Brazil..The night is over but everybody is still dancing samba here...none of us has slept yet..
I promise that my next posts will not be from the World Cup..
To all the fans..enjoy the final!!!

Interesantan tekst o svetskom prvenstvu u fudbalu i utakmicama sa opisom ...
Lep pogled na deo grada i fudbalski stadion ...
Dobar snimak, lepo pokazana deo grada i arhitektura, lepe boje.
Lepo je videti utakmice uzivo i doziveti atmosveru trenutke slavlja pobednika ...
Sve najbolje za vikend, srecno.

Thanks for this post. Good presentation view of Rio from the top of a hill. When I looked to the title, my first idea was about "Oh, Macarena" song. ;)
We are continuing to watch World Cup.
Best wishes from Russia!

A very impressive stadium and also a very good capture of the interesting cityscape. A well composed picture with different diagonal layers.

Ελένη γεια σου,
πολύ καλή η πανοραμική θέα του θρυλικού σταδίου,με τα κτήρια γύρο του να έχουν κατασκευαστεί τόσο κοντά του.Το απογευματινό φως αδικεί την φωτογραφία αλλά και το ίδιο το στάδιο,με τα δένδρα στο εμπρός και στο πίσω μέρος της φωτογραφίας να αναδεικνύουν την ομοφιά του τοπίου.
Πάγματι η ήττα ήταν άδικη μπορώ να πω, αλλά έτσι είναι η μπάλα.

πραγματικά εντυπωσιακή θέα, παρά τη δυσκολία της εγγραφής από τόσο μεγάλη απόσταση και υπό δύσκολες καιρικές συνθήκες, το πανόραμα και οι πληροφορίες που μας περιγράφει έχουν πολύ μεγάλο ενδιαφέρον. Το ζεστό φως πάνω στο γήπεδο και στα κτήρια, όπως και η πλούσια βλάστηση, κάνουν την εικόνα πολύ ευχάριστη. Η σημείωσή σου είναι πραγματική ανταπόκριση:)Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλή συνέχεια,
ΥΓ Να ζήσουν ο ανηψιός σου και η γυναίκα του, με το καλό να ανταμώσετε σύντομα!

sicuramente la distanza non ha favorito la qualitŕ, ma la vista da qui č incredibile.
Sei la portavoce di TE ai mondiali, ci aggiorni e ci tieni informati su cose che passano meno osservata dalle televisioni.
Non festeggiare troppo, dopo ti stanchi e non riesci a goderti la finale.

I´m glad you got sunny days here. You came in the best season because it is not as hot as in the summer and has little rain in the southeastern region . I did not know that the Maracanazinho will be demolished after the World Cup then your photo will make history. I do not remember seeing any pictures of the two stadiums like this then I thank you for this excellent POV. Even if you do not take all the photos that you would like, I wish that you take into your heart all our affection.
A big hug

A pity Belgium has lost of Argentina but this is football!
Wonderful panoramic view about this stadion.
Your angle is nice with depth and perspective.
Also a nice architecture with the big building.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

I like this view a lot, it shows perfectly how huge this stadium is. Is positioned perfectly in your scene too, being slightly off centre and allowing more of the view of the city, which enhances the gritty urban feel to the picture. Then the greenery in the foreground is really appealing as a contrast to the busy city. Very nicely done.

another very fine picture showing Maracana, a temple of football. Very fine general view. Like the shot very much. Very well done.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg

τι κάνετε Eleni?
No hablemos de Brasil ni de ese tema para no tentar a las suerte
Tus notas son periodisticas y me encanta que disfrutes de tu estadia en Rio
Cuando hay partido aca, se cierra todo, hasta la venta de nafta y creo que el metro casi no funciona
No se porque esta captura tiene pocos puntos, me parece tomada de forma profesional desde una buena altura con un punto de vista diferente y esa bruma invernal tan caracteristica de estas regiones
Un saludo con carińo

εκτιμηθεί, and many thanks for the supportive critique written on my photo.
The impressive stadium, moden round shape and canopy well in view from the high POV to the trough.
Until saw this picture, I thought the area where it located is a wider plateau - well, I feel I learn a new things every day on TE.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

Although the haze has degradation to the quality of light and color, your photo offers a useful perspective on the World Cup/Olympic Games Complex. As I write this note, the consolation game (for third place) has just ending. What a nightmare the past four days have been to the football crazed Brazilians. My deep sympathies for my Brazilian friends, and congratulations to my Dutch friends.
Warm regards to you.
