Pico Peito do Pombo (Dove's Chest peak) is located in the mountainous region of the Brazilian municipality of Macaé in the state of Rio de Janeiro, close to the locality of Arraial do Sana, almost on the political border with Nova Friburgo. It has an altitude of 1,400 meters and to get there it is necessary to face a 4 hour hike through the Atlantic Forest, and of course, with a lot of climb. However, the walk pays off, as from the top it is possible to see part of the northern coast of Rio de Janeiro on good days (wikipedia).
It was the fifth time I went up, once again swearing never to do it again because it is a very hard hike.
This time I took my 13-year-old nephew Bernardo, who went up very well. He just suffered a little from the cold up there.
We started the climb at 11pm and arrived before 3am. We stayed in the cold waiting for the sunrise and then went down.
I took a Z6 with 16mm fisheye, 18mm Zeiss and 70-200mm f/4G and tripod.
Thank you for looking.

Kudos - great reward for effort.  All great for a city dweller like me, especially the sky in No.9.
