Photographer's Note

The two brothers mountains (Os Dois Irmãos) taken from the famous Ipanema beach of Rio de Janeiro in the middle of a bright morning of May. What is incredible in Rio de Janeiro is how merged are the Nature and the City. Almost everywhere, you just need to look up or behind you and you can see either the mountains, either the sea. Here, you can see both…

Besides, you just can’t believe how the beach is crowded at this time of the day and how many people enjoy doing sports there : playing volley, capoiera, and especially walking all along the beach. Cariocas from 15 to 70 year old can be seen walking rather quickly along the large alley of Copacabana, Ipanema or Leblon under this big hot sun. That’s quite spectacular…

Technically, I only add a light blue touch and sharpened the picture.
