    Who loves photographing like me, knows what I am talking about: the sky over Brasília is the most amazing natural scene that one can imagine: especially now in summer, during the rainy season, the sky changes permanently, its colors, the formations of clouds, its 3D-dimensions. In July 2007, the Institute of National Historic and Artistic Heritage (IPHAN = Instituto do Patrimônio Histórico e Artístico Nacional) received a petition to nominate the sky over Brasília as „national heritage“. The proposal was made by the architect Carlos Fernando de Moura Delphim (Minas Gerais), who considers it the greatest monument of the city at all. His conviction was born after several visits to Brasília which he describes as follows: „ When I arrived in Brasília, I was missing points of reference of the city as we all normally are used to. There are no corners, places, churches at the end of a street. But one day when I was hanging around bored, I was looking up to the sky and discovered that Brasília has to be seen more from above than from any other side. This sky is a blessing, a most wonderful thing“. Desde julho de 2007, está protocolado no Instituto do Patrimônio Histórico e Artístico Nacional (Iphan) um pedido para que o céu de Brasília seja tombado como patrimônio natural. O pedido foi feito pelo arquiteto mineiro Carlos Fernando de Moura
