A lucky shot of Chris the Redeemer on a very cloudy day

On this particular day, the weather forecast called for partly cloudy skies. My friend and I decided to take our chances, and visit the Christ the Redeemer statue. Upon arriving at the top of Corcovado, visibility was very low and we were only able to see the statue's feet. By some stroke of luck (and swiftly flowing clouds), the weather slowly cleared. I kept shooting photos, until I got this one. A shot clear of clouds or people! The ride to the top of Corcovado and the scenic views, were breath-taking, as well.
