06 Nov 2004 Cristo Blanco

This week's Photo Friday prompt is "Radiant." I had a few other shots I was thinking of, but then I remembered this one and it was just perfect. This is the Cristo Blanco (or, as we called it, "the Big Jesus") overlooking the city of Cusco, Peru.

On our first afternoon in Cusco during our great Peruvian vacation, Emily and I were the only ones to brave a huge, steep staircase (no small feat when you've just flown from sea level to 11,000 feet) and then a half mile up the road to pay this guy a visit.

He's about 30 feet tall and it almost looks like he's parting the clouds himself.
