Turin, the Olympic Brazier 2006

The 2006 version of the Olympic Brazier was conceived to represent in a single object the tension of the Olympic Challenge: 5 flames for a single Spirit, 5 as the circles, a symbol of the union between the continents. The structure of the Brazier recalls the athlete's torsion, whose efforts result in high and lively flame. With its height of 60m, the Turin Olympic Brazier 2006 has earned the primacy of brazier highest in the history of the Olympics. The Olympic flame is 4m high.

It is well known that we Portuguese once sailed the seven seas searching for new lands, wealth and adventures.
We were brave in those days and gave the world new worlds!

Luckily I don’t have to sail the big oceans on a small ship to sea the wonders of our world …
No Sir, I just need to check with Mr. Tom, the finest host there is, for a trip around the world with SKY WATCH TOURS and with a click here, a click there I am quickly in the USA, England, Brazil, Italy, China, Australia, Finland … well, everywhere.

And on each stop I come to see a little marvel of our world under a great sky!
Hope you can come and see my piece of the sky at lenses & visions

Thanks for sharing the symbolic nature of this light. Beautiful, Pietro.

Nice New Design to represent the 5 circles of Olympic Games!
Like the vision of torsion and efforet, it was well-thought.
Does the flamme always burn there? Or was it a picture of 2006?

Unique and very beautiful picture!!

Wow! There's almost a mirage at where the fire and clouds meet.

Happy skywatching!

Beautiful shot!
