My first day in Rio was as clear as it was going to get. I decided to head up to the Sugar Loaf mountain so I could get a view of the entire city. The beaches behind the rocks above is the infamous Copacabana and to the right is the small beach of Urca. The shot was taken from high above the Sugar Loaf mountain which is the apposing mountain where the Christ the Redeemer statue is. I plan on taking a helicopter ride along the entire city to get great shots!
