some excellent Rio aerials, ALL of them by Luk´s, at this thread in SSC

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1471987

port area and the start of Rio-Niterói bridge


downtown and Sugarloaf mountain behind


downtown, Flamengo and Botafogo neighborhoods (and Urca, at Sugarloaf´s base)


Niterói, at the other side of Guanabara Bay, and the other side of the Rio-Niterói bridge


Niterói


Niterói in the bottom, and Rio on the other side


Guanabara Bay (dont know what Guanabara means... must check my Tupi-Guarani language dictionary lol)



Governador Island and international airport


downtown


from left to right, along the Guanabara Bay coast: Botafogo, Flamengo, Centro (downtown)


sugarloaf


remember, there are 11 million people at Rio´s metro area... (at the left bottom, the start of Copacabana beach, at the Atlantic Ocean coast)


Copacabana and Ipanema beaches


Copacabana (right), Ipanema (left), Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon... and the Christ State, somewhere inside those clouds


a closer look at Ipanema gives us a better notion of dimensions


Barra da Tijuca neighborhood






and from the same thread, by the same author, Buenos Aires

thanks. I suppose that when most people look at Rio photos, its difficult to understand why its considered a megacity. Where are the 11 million people?? Hell, even the downtown hardly is shown on touristic photos of the city... its usually, only Ipanema and Copacabana, and Botafogo and Flamengo (these two usually appear on photos of the Christ Statue (looking towards Niteroi at the other side of the bay) or of the Sugarloaf mountain.

But this photo definitly shows the size of the city. From this photo, you only need a closer look at Copacabana and Ipanema (to relate the size of the buildings with the beach) to have a better notion of the total size of the city.

FYI, Copacabana beach is 3,62 km long (in a straight line, from one extremity to the next) or 4km long, if you follow the curve of the beach....

Haha! One glance at that and I knew it wasn't the Luxor...

But great photos! Thanks.
