Lightning struck Rio de Janeiro’s iconic Christ the Redeemer monument, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and a photographer managed to capture the precise moment.
The lightning bolt struck the afternoon of Feb. 10, and photographer Fernando Braga shared the picture on Instagram.
“Unstoppable. Never give up. Many frustrated attempts to capture lightning falling on the [statue of] Christ. Many rains and days passed. I was close a few times, but I had never captured this on the [statue of] Christ,” the photographer wrote.
“It’s the place that I love to photograph! I already have a very special photo for me that was of the blessed moon and now I have the divine lightning!” Braga exclaimed.
