An Italian man captured an image over the sea, and some claim it’s a famed religious figure.
Alfredo Lo Brutto, from Agropoli, Italy, captured the figure above the sea. Some say that it looks like the renowned Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
“I was enchanted by the view. I don’t often share pictures on social media, but when I took this one, I instantly felt like I wanted other people to see it, because it was so beautiful,” he said, reported the Daily Mail.

He captured it over the Tyrrhenian Sea.
The Christ the Redeemer statue is 125 feet tall, located on a rock near Rio.
Construction started on the famed figure in 1922.
Blimey!!! Terrific shot!

‘Firefall’ Goes Viral
“Firefall,” an illusion created by sunlight on a waterfall in Yosemite National Park, California.
The natural phenomenon that makes it appear that fire or lava is flowing over a cliff. It only lasted a few days.

Today’s firefall in Yosemite. Truly a sight to be seen and experienced. There’s a reason thousands of people made their way to various parts of the valley to witness and capture this truly remarkable event. #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #yosemitenps #firefall #horsetailfalls #waterfall #waterfalls #elcapitan #optoutside #landscapephotography #colorphotography #fireinthesky #natgeo #bay_shooters #earth_pix #ourplanetdaily @nikonusa #fresnophotographer #abc30insider @abc30_actionnews
“Firefall” is only visible for a short time in February and draws a number of tourists and photographers each year.
Vaché Geyoghlian, a photographer from Fresno, California shot several photos of it on Feb. 18.
“My reaction was complete amazement,” he said, reported CNN. “I was overwhelmed with excitement to finally get to see it in person AND get some good shots of it too.”
“My friend and I got to that specific spot at about 2:00-2:30 p.m. and we were the first ones there,” Geyoghlian added. “That didn’t last long as the entire area filled with hundreds of people looking to witness/photograph the ‘Firefall.'”

Witnessing the very rare “Fire Fall” last night was something I’ll never forget 🔥 We set off on a 27hr strike mission with no sleep to capture Yosemite covered in thick blankets of snow all day and to hopefully capture the firefall at sunset. We lucked out and scored an absolute burner! For those who don’t know: Only a couple days of the year in February, the sun sets at the perfect angle casting rays onto Yosemite’s horsetail fall. This waterfall doesn’t flow all year round and some years not even at all. But when you get lucky enough with waterflow and a perfectly clear sky, this magical phenomena occurs for just brief moments! ✨
“We have a designated parking area at Yosemite Lodge and visitors walk from there to the viewing areas,” said National Park Service spokesman Scott Gediman.
“With the snow and storm activity recently, it has been hit or miss,” he added.
The park does have a 24-hour hotline with information about it. You can call 209-372-0200.
