Rio by Night





Photographed from 1300 feet above the city on Pão de Açúcar (Sugarloaf Mountain) looking down on Guanabara Bay with Skywatch Friday in mind.

Unfortunately Tom is on bed rest today and for the first time you are stuck with me. I have my orders to visit as many as I can, and make sure the links are working and everyone is being good. I am sure you are all being good.
Tom and I thank you for Sky-Watching this week. I am sure that as soon as Tom's heart beat settles down he will be back here and visiting.

The sky colors are terrific, the that middle one with all the swirls is so much fun!

Hallo from north Norway. Last week I saw all Sky Watch Friday photos and they were all great, and I hope to see them all this week too. I love to travel around the world this way.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful sky watch and have a great weekend!

Wow. Fabulous sky. I wonder how you do that? My camera doesn't allow night shots. Dammit.

A great series of shots. I especially liked the second to the last one where the distant hill remains in focus but the lights squiggle. How do you get up to the top of that peak? Is it by road, or is there a cable car?

T.R. said...

Doug, it takes TWO cable cars to get to the top where I took the pic.
