Photographer's Note

"Armação dos Búzios", often referred as "Búzios", a resort town located in Rio de Janeiro state, Brazil.

Once the preserve of pirates and slave traders, the peninsula of Búzios, located at 100 miles (169 km) northeast of Rio de Janeiro city, is today the haunt of the rich and famous of the world who flock to the city to enjoy the beaches and the night life.

The peninsula was popularized by legendary movie star Brigitte Bardot in the 1960s, and her statue still sits along the "Rua das Pedras" (Street of stones).

The peninsula is a beach resort with an active night life and restaurants. The west coast beaches offer calm and clear waters while the east coast ones, facing the open sea, are a bit more wild and draw surfers and water sports enthusiasts.

Búzios is a popular destination for cruise ships.
