Ethereal Beauty by Anna Verônica Fernandes Ribeiro in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

I normally take underwater photos. We have so many beaches, rivers and lagoons and the sun makes the landscape beautiful. My work is best when the water is not too cold. We have many mountains inside and around the city too! This is a great thing because the composition of photos are easy.

Tell us about the Rio de Janeiro:

It’s a beautiful place with hot weather some good waves to surf and many mountains. It’s a big city, so has the problems as many others big cities do. But the people are kind and in general very receptive.

A perfect day?

Sun, weather not so hot, water not so cold. Winter is my favorite season to take pictures.

What is the best thing about Rio de Janeiro?

Beaches, like “Joatinga” or “Guaratiba”, and that there are many fun cities near Rio de Janeiro to explore and capture good moments.

What is the worst?


What would be surprising about this place to an outsider?

Gorgeous waterfalls, and that there are many secret spots that only local’s from Rio de Janeiro know about.

If your Rio de Janeiro was a person or character who would it be?

Beautiful and crazy, really unstable.
