Getting a picture of Christ the Redeemer “holding” the moon was a photographer’s dream come true.


In shooting, there are times when you need more than just skill and accuracy. You also need a little luck. Recently, photographer Leonardo Sens finally got an amazing picture of Christ the Redeemer what looks like he is “holding” the moon in both hands. This picture has been seen all over the world. This amazing shot came after three years of hard work that finished in failure, which makes the victory even sweeter.

A famous piece of building in Brazil called Christ the Redeemer has long been a subject of interest for photographers and tourists. Between 1922 and 1931, nine years of work were put into making the figure, which is now 30 meters (98 feet) tall after its 8-meter (26-foot) base. The wingspan of this beautiful monument is 92 feet, and its arms are outstretched. It is made of reinforced concrete and soapstone, and it represents both religious devotion and artistic talent.

Since the 1930s, photographers from all over the world have pointed their cameras at this huge building and taken pictures of it from a huge range of views. In the beginning of this year, a picture of Christ the Redeemer being hit by lightning at night went popular, stunning people online with its precision. Fernando Braga took the picture expertly on February 10, and it captivated millions of people. It became a symbol of the power of nature’s beauty and the human eye behind the lens.


In addition to the many pictures that show how impressive Christ the Redeemer is, a new picture that shows the statue descending with the moon has become very famous. Leonardo Sens was able to frame a picture that makes it look like the statue is “holding” the moon with its arms outstretched. This is an amazing feat of patience and careful planning. This hard-to-grab picture was taken on May 4 from Icaraí Beach in the Rio de Janeiro municipality of Niterói, which is about seven miles from the statue. It shows how patient and dedicated the shooter was.

Sens’s picture is stunning not only because it shows two celestial things coming together, but also because of how carefully it was placed to make the illusion. The moon, which looks like it’s sitting right on top of the figure, lines up perfectly with the arms stretched out, making an unbelievable scene. In an interview with the Brazilian news outlet G1, the shooter talked about how the picture was made. It was satisfying to finally complete a long-awaited goal. “In the end, everything went well, and I was able to register the long-awaited photo,” he said.


Sens has been interested in photography and the Rio de Janeiro area since 2005. For almost twenty years, he has been taking pictures of everyday and unusual events. For this shot, he carefully planned ahead and studied the moon’s path very carefully, which helped him get the right angle. With the care and attention to detail of a true artist, he talked about his experience: “I went early at the planned time.” I just had to set up the camera and wait for the moon to line up.


When it comes to photography, mastery of the craft, artistic vision, and the unpredictable nature of the topics can all come together to create works of art that captivate the world. Leonardo Sens’s triumphant painting of Christ the Redeemer embracing the moon shows not only how good he was at painting, but also how beautiful nature and man-made things can be. When you work hard, wait your turn, and look through the eyes of a visionary, you can capture even the most rare and beautiful moments forever.
