Sunset on Guaíra

Porto Alegre
I intended to capture the exquisite afternoon light of southern Brazil. The activity in the sky and in the water was intense.

I barely had time to finish the sketch and the annonuced rain came quick and heavy A few minutes later, sheltered by  Centro Cultural Mário Quintana dome, I could witness an astonishingly
 beautiful sunset .

Rio de Janeiro Botanical Garden Fountain

The Fountain of the Muses
Rio de Janeiro Botanical Garden is a real oasis in the middle of the hustle-bustle of city life. As we enter the main pathway sided by the Royal Palm Trees we can see the beautiful Fountain of the Muses.
Made in England by Herbert W. Hogg, the fountain was brought to Botanical Garden from its original location at Largo da Lapa in 1895.
