This is the view of Copacabana and the Avenida Atlântica from the 10th floor of the Hotel Tulip in Copacabana..actually is the view from my balcony an early morning..
This Avenue is about 4 klms long and you can see clearly the extension of the beach, the iconic wave-patterned portuguese pavement, the clean sand and the car lanes.
On every side, there are two lanes for cars and a bike lane for cyclists on every side as well..This amazing and panoramic Avenue is extended all the way to Leme and is the major point of visit for every tourist.
Day and night the people are walking up and down here and there is so much going on especially now, during the Cup where traditional music is played and samba is among the dances that people of all ages love to dance..On the side of the beach there are several stands that offer cool drinks and light snacks and of course they offer the football spectacle on their huge size TV's..
The sand is fine and golden but most of all is very clean and on this sand is where everybody is playing football day and night.
It is amazing the way that the orange "Rio" janitors clean the beaches and the city around the clock, restless workers who deserve a pat on the back for their extraordinary work...because I have not found one single piece of paper or garbage on the sand, on the streets or in the city while my stay here...everything is spotless clean!!
The most exciting thing is that the Copacabana beach never closes, is open 24 hours a day for everybody to enjoy. At night there are lights that make the night, day and all activities continue on and on, non stop..
To the right you will see some tall buildings but no high rises and this is another thing that makes this city so exciting, there are great views from everywhere to everywhere due to the laws that don't allow to build tall buildings and sky scrapers here.
One souvenir from the magnificent city of Rio de Janeiro!!

you have done a wondeful job in describing the area that we see so well.
and if you hadn't of mentioned the portugese wave pattern i maybe wouldn't have thought of it as such.
love the long beach, the curve, the ocean, and the light, great to have this view from your balcony :)
well taken photo

What can I say? I have got very nice view from a window of the hotel. I'd like to be there too, very provocative scene for a worker from cool Ural ;)
I see this World Cup is full of surprises and the show must go on. We are waiting for...

What a beautiful place and it seems even more so reading you note as I imagine darkness falling, the lights coming on and then the sunrise to start it all again. I love how you have composed this with the three fine curves of the road, beach and sea all being a perfect natural shaped contrast to the square shapes of the buildings. You had such perfect light and weather for this great image.
Love your note too, the part about how clean it is really made me smile, civic pride is such a great thing.
Have a great Saturday

Le regard suit naturellement la courbe de la plage dans l'image pour se perdre dans tous les immeubles au loin. L'ensemble est profond et la lumière est très belle.

Hello Eleni ,
This is a splendid panoramic view of Copacabana . I like especially the light , with some parts in a light shade .
Perfectly composed .

ci siamo! !!
Una finale inaspettata, senza il Brasile, forse un po' vuota, come questa spiaggia.
La foto è molto bella, il luogo è riconoscibile anche per chi non ci è mai stato e lo hai valorizzato al meglio attraverso il tuo obiettivo.
Un caro saluto

I am envious, a Rio de Janeiro hotel overlooking the Copacabana Beach, wide swept and unoccupied. Would be fun to splash in the water and relax with the other tourists. And bicycling the Avenida Atlantica would be fun.
Thanks for sharing,

Ελένη γεια σου,
πολύ όμορφη η 'παραλιακή' με τον βαρύγδουπο όνομα αλλά και η περιοχή Copacabana να είανι γνωστή παγκοσμίως.Απέραντη η αμμώδης παραλία με τις πολυκατοικίες να καλύπτουν το μεγαλύτερο μέρος της και τον δρόμο που περιγράφεις να είναι τόσο εντυπωσιακός γοα το φάρδος του.
Το πρωί βγαίνουν εξαιρετικές φωτογραφίας αλλά ποιός ξυπνάει τόσο νωρίς.

No football, but a excellent panorama view about the beach from Rio
You took these picture out of the height with a nice curving of the beach and road.
This cares for depth and perspective and nice panorama view about these area.
Excellent presentation with pleasant colours.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Interesantan tekst o legendarnoj plazi sa opisom, lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontarst i perspektiva, lepo pokazana plaza, bulevar i arhitektura.
Dobar rad, lepo uhvacen trenutak sa oblacima, lepe boje.
Sve najbolje za vikend, srecno.
An interesting article on the legendary beach with a description, a nice view and a second ...
Good time recording, contrast and perspective, well demonstrated plaza, boulevard and architecture.
Good work, nice captured moment with clouds, beautiful colors.
All the best for the weekend, good luck.

Hello Eleni ,
a beautiful and iconic beach scene with the golden sand curving gently into the distance giving the image such a lovely depth.
Nice clear details complement an equally impressive note.
Kind regards Les.

What a fantastic place you were visited and photographed! Truly beautiful view taken from a well selected POV with great sense of the perspective. Like it a lot! Very well executed.

Your photo brings the freshness of the morning in a gorgeous composition. Copacabana at its best. This is a privileged view and should be being very nice to wake up with an overview of these on your balcony. It is a pity that the World Cup is already over and you have to go back to your city. Yesterday I watched a documentary on TV Globo about daily life on the Isle of Ikaria and the right kind of food and longevity and remembered you.
A big hug to you

Superbe plage avec le bel effet de perspective du rivage et cette courbe, belle profondeur d'image, jolis tons de bleu.
ourania (30063) 2014-07-13 3:48
η θέα από το μπαλκόνι σου είναι υπέροχη, σίγουρα ακόμη μια αξέχαστη εντύπωση από την παραμονή σου στο Ρίο στη διάρκεια του Παγκοσμίου Κυπέλλου. Μου αρέσει πολύ η πανοραμική παρουσίαση, το μεγάλο βάθος και ο τρόπος που όλα τα στοιχεία της ακτής ακολουθούν την καμπύλη μέχρι τους μακρινούς βράχους και τον ορίζοντα. Πολύ όμορφα τα χρώματα με το πρωινό φως. Το απέραντο τοπίο φαίνεται για την ώρα πολύ ήρεμο. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλή σου μέρα,

You certainly got a great view from your hotel in Rio.
So this is the world famous Copacabana then. I must admit I thought it to be bigger than that. It somehow reminds me of the "Promenade des Anglais" in Nice with the beach separated from the town by a busy road. OK, I can belief that there is more life here in the evenings than in southern France and the ambiance must be great.
Enjoy the rest of the cup and today's final.

A beautiful beach and an interesting note. I guess this is an early morning, the beach looks quite deserted. Very attractive colours with the deep blue sea against the light brown sand.

Hola Eleni, encantadora vista de esta bella playa de la famosa ciudad, muy bien captada con un estupendo pov, en esta muy buena y bonita fotografía.

View fom the height of the 10th floor, show the famous beach strip and the endless number of buildings along.
Colors contrast beautifully under the morning light with the blue sea.
Lovely sight, worth to wake-up and see this every morning.

Thanks for the wishings to surmount a crisis. But in fact whole my working activity is for no more think on it. A country where good profissionals or no profissionals must emigrate. Even the active ones are badly paid. Well future is unknown! A long time before had the dream to get out from here. I mean when we marry with somebody life is traced. Concerned to the photo I did not care of the name of this avenue and for the first time paid attention to its name. In Angra do Reis I haven't visit good beaches. But heard of Ilha Grande. In Brasil I liked the dancing events occured in the hotels but they do it everywhere at open air. Sometimes people in hotels do not go outside for fear. Perhaps when we begin to contact with local people their friendly support is felt. Anyway everywhere we must be wise. This is a world of human traps. Warm regards. Tomi
