Angra dos Reis, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
By the shoreline at midnight I set out to try and capture the beautiful starry sky. After some rock climbing and wondering around, I find the perfect spot, framing the shore, ocean and sky. There was something about that dreamy cloud too that made it all more appealing to me. This was captured on a tripod over a 30 second exposure in order to gather enough light, and also make the waves almost ghost-like in their appearance.
All the way down on the horizon you can see what it looks like some city lights. Those are actually comercial ships, cutting through what is a very busy international comercial route. Most of them are heading to Itaguaí, a nearby city, in which they stop to collect iron ore.
