Rio de Janeiro

Traveling and capturing images of the world are my lifelong passions. There are times, though, that nature blesses us with stunningly beautiful images right where we are: all we have to do is to look outside our windows. Just like magic.

In a summer afternoon in Rio de Janeiro, after a thunder storm, the menacing dark clouds of rain turned themselves into exuberant multicolored clouds, under the sunset light.

Although it lasted just a few minutes, there was enough time for the attentive eyes of the photographer.

Rio de Janeiro

The New Year's Eve celebrations in Rio de Janeiro city are not limited to Copacabana beach. There are fireworks in various parts of the city.

At the images below we can see three moments of the fireworks in Flamengo Beach, on the first minutes of 2008.

Below we can see a panoramic view of the Guanabara Bay with fireworks in Flamengo Beach, at the left, and the fireworks at Icaraí Beach, in Niteroi city, at the right, on the other side of the bay.

Happy New Year and many new images for all in 2008!
