Time-lapse Tuesday: Rio at Sunset

December 29, 2014 Daniel Sendecki

It’s Tuesday, so once again it’s “time” to “lapse” it up! (See what we did there?) Each week, we’ll share a new way of looking at this big blue planet of ours. While a photo does a great job of capturing what we see with our own eyes, a time-lapse reveals just how little the eye can see. As the sun sets on another year, we’re headed to the top of Rio’s Sugarloaf mountain to reflect on the year gone by—and take in one last gorgeous sunset.

Sugarloaf is a peak situated in Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro at the mouth of Guanabara Bay on a peninsula that sticks out into the Atlantic. Rising 396 meters (1,299 ft) above the harbour, its name is said to refer to its resemblance to the traditional shape of concentrated refined loaf sugar. It is known worldwide for its cableway and panoramic views of the city.
