In this week’s photo, sand meets surf on the long stretch of Ipanema Beach in Rio de Janeiro. Locals and visitors admire the lingering colors just as the sun sinks behind the city’s iconic skyline. Another day at this popular Rio beach comes to an end, only to reignite in bustling activity tomorrow. People gravitate here during daylight hours to play footbol (aka soccer) and soak up the sun’s rays. Others browse the vendor stalls, bookstores, and galleries on the store-lined streets just across the street.
