Landscape photo over Rio de Janeiro city, Brazil, taken from Sugar Loaf.

I had about a week of downtime in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil following my time in Sao Paulo and Nova Friburgo, so I was dragged from one tourist location to another by our local friends whether I wanted to or not.  I was quickly reminded how frustrating it can be to be forced to try and be creative in less than ideal circumstances.  Bad light, limited time, and hundreds of tourists aren’t a recipe for great travel photographs.

I was taken up to Pão de Açúcar (Sugar Loaf Mountain), which I must admit was spectacular, and had to stall as long a humanly possible for the sun to drop down in the sky a little to get this cityscape. Any decent travel photo of Rio wouldn’t be complete without the Cristo Redentor (Christ The Redeemeer).

    The name of the Sugar loaf mountain is Pão de Açucar! Pão de Queijo actually means cheese bread, lol
