Travel Photo of the Day: Christ the Redeemer

Chris the Redeemer photography

We took this shot from Sugarloaf Mountain on a rainy day in Rio de Janeiro.

Our group tour to Brazil was a blast but a lot of our time in Rio was spent in the rain. One of the redeeming (no pun intended) aspects to the rain was this cool shot we took from the top of Sugarloaf Mountain. Sugarloaf is located at the opposite end of the city from Corcovado, the mountain which the Christ the Redeemer statue sits.  The fog and rain clouds were passing through quickly as we snapped away and got this shot. We’re looking forward to another adventure in Brazil and hope to see Rio in more sunshine next time, but are happy to take home this image from the rain.


  1. Fantastic shot, I love the way the clouds look.

  2. What a powerful shot. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Terrible weather can make for a great photo. I usually don’t have the patience and willpower 🙂
