A trip I made to Brazil in 2010 where I visited Rio de Janeiro, the Parque Estadual do Ibitipoca, Juiz de Fora and the state of Minas Gerais.
It was a lovely trip as you can imagine. Even though I only stayed for 10 days or so, I really enjoyed my time and Brazil is a real lovely country.
Rio de Janeiro is the combination of modern world and favelas a must seen contrast adding to that the beauty of nature and it wilderness.
At one moment you are on the lovely beaches surrounded by modern and rich places and on the other you are facing the extreme poverty of favelas.
In this gallery you can find some of the most beautifull HDR photography I have made during the trip.
I hope you will enjoy them as much as I enjoyed the adventure.
