Photographer's Note

A bright morning in Rio de Janeiro. It was a great opportunity to discover the famous "Pão de Açucar". A steep mountain with its feet in the sea.

It was a really impressive view, especially when arriving on the narrow beach "Praia vermelha" with so few people. I always thought the place full of tourists. Not this time.

Then, arriving at the first station, in front of the Sugar Loaf, you reach a large plateform embrassing the whole bay of Rio de Janeiro. Few steps and you are surounded by sea and deep forest in front of this huge mountain. It's unforgettable.

At this very moment, you understand the meaning of "A cidade maravilhosa". Once the "Bondinho" sent you on the top itself of the Sugar Loaf, it's even more wonderful...

Que legal !
