Corcovado from the airplane
As we were coming in to land at Santos Dumont airport in Rio de Janeiro, we flew by Corcovado which is dominated by the famous statue of Christ overlooking the city. I had a good view of it from my window although the sun angle was not at its best to take a photograph. I took it anyway, and with some of the fancy software available today I was able to make some adjustments and turn it into a semi-acceptable shot. It presents the popular landmark from an unusual perspective not often seen except in postcards. Photo Credit: Yvon from Ottawa

    A really beautiful sight. Looking from the Christ statue you can see sooooo much of beautiful Rio de Janeiro. It really is one of the most beautiful views and cities. And, you can see the Christ statue from many locations around Rio. It is such a focal point.

    guarding Brazilian Democracy even against the creeping corpocracy from the U.S.! Symbol of right and wrong! Shining preserver for all humanity. Represents principles proven down the ages. his teachings not to be ignored, cast into doubt as in the U.S.A. and its evil corporate designs on the world.
