A view of some of the mountains that are so much part of the city of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, South America, from the mid-way cable car station before the summit of Sugar Loaf mountain. In the foreground is the Atlantic ocean and in the distance, a sandy beach is just a sliver of white against the blue of the ocean and the haze. Many buildings on the beachfront can also be seen. A few leaves frame the top left corner of the photo to create greater depth. Photo shot in the morning sunlight; horizontal format. Copy space.
