Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – Early in the morning, at sunrise, Baja Beach in Rio de Janeiro is almost deserted. Bathers and tourists have not as yet got to the beach. A few early risers can be seen on the sidewalk; but they are too far away to be recognised. To the left is the Atlantic Ocean and in the far background, a section of the mountains that are seen in many parts of this large Latin American city. The rays of the morning sun lights up the top of the building to the right. Photo shot in the early morning at sunrise; horizontal format. Copy space.
