Follow my journey through the Seven Natural Wonders of the World at nationalgeographic.com/nokia. | | “Every day on this assignment, I woke up astounded that a place this beautiful could be real. Soccer isn’t all that will amaze people in Rio this year. The Harbor is the world’s larg- est bay; mountains rise up all around it; and wedged right between is the spectacular city. Easy to see why it’s one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, and once again, the Nokia Lumia 1020 let me explore and shoot in a whole new way. In fact, I look at my images and can’t believe they were all shot with a smartphone. The Lumia 1020 is an absolutely incred- ible low-light camera. The details it captures, like the sparkling lights in this nighttime image, astonish me. I used the 1020 just like a DSLR camera, shooting aerials, action, in all kinds of light with fantastic quality. I just can’t believe the pictures—and I took them!” — Stephen Alvarez, National Geographic photographer NOKIA LUMIA 1020 Telling Rio’s story like never before.
