Cristo Redentor from Mirante Dona Marte

While visiting Rio last year, I was intent of capturing the iconic view of the city from Mirante Dona Marte as one of the highlights on my shot list. I was also going to Shoot Cristo Redentor or Christ the Redeemer later the same week, however, while waiting on the lighting conditions over the city to change, I remembered one of the tips I learned about shooting out in the field....."Turn around". Sometimes we're so intent on what's in front of us that we forget to look around and see the everything your location offers; in this case, I was treated to this beautiful view of Cristo Redentor against the billowing clouds as the sun began to set.
