Rio by Helicopter

Decent weather at dawn means I could finally get a chance to take a helicopter around the city, something I've been denied because of weather 3 or 4 times before.
We went on the last ride of the day and though the light wasn't ideal for pictures, the views were amazing.
Christ the Redeemer from a helicopter is obviously the centre piece of the trip and I took an embarrassment of shots most of which were blown out by the sun. 

The trip takes around 10 minutes and runs $120 a person. That may seem expensive on the surface but its pretty hard to think of a cooler perspective from which to see the city.
After the ride I went to the airport on Friday night and started a 30 hour journey/ordeal which ended on Sunday in Finland.
I  took a few pictures in Helsinki though I haven't looked at them yet. I'll post a couple if any of them turn out.
Stay well everyone.
