98 KM | München – Zugspizte

Details on the Summit of Zugspitze. Note the cable car going down on the left.

Distance98 Kilometers

LensTS Photo Line 115 mm. f/7 Triplet APO

First light on the new TS APO Refractor on the most iconic Mountain in Germany (and also, the highest) which is a landmark clearly seen from München on clear days.

This time, specially clear air allows us to see even the summit facilities.

And, if looking closely, also the very cable from the cable car can be seen descending into the Valley, in Garmisch – Partenkirchen.

To achieve the very high quality of this shot, I have used a technique which comes from Astrophotography and helps reduce the noise of DSLR images to an incredible amount: Stacking.

In Stacking, several images are taken at once (instead of a single shot) and combined in any image processing software (such as Photoshop). This removes the statistically random variablity of noise between the pixels and keeps the original object of the image much clearer.

Fantastic Morning view with incredible detail on the long distance sights from Valdemadera mountain pass, a few kilometers South of Zaragoza, in Spain.

As usually, the moments before the sunrise are magic: clear air and illuminated background can make very long distance sights possible.

The Canary Islands are a place with great potential for Distant Sights, mainly for the great height and the distance between the islands. Usually, the pictures we have received involve the Teide Peak (3.718 m) – this highest in Spain – but in this case the view is from Gran Canaria onto Lanzarote, the first of its kind!

Thank you Charles for sharing it with us.

Mont Ventoux is a mountain clearly known for the Tour de France, when it provides everyone with a fantastic show.

Nevertheless, this is not the only show provided by Mont Ventoux, as it is an iconic landmark as seen from Canigou, at the other side of Golfe du Lyon.

The view of its shadow, together with the lights of the villages below is something remarkable.

Just as the sun was rising over the horizon, Adrian managed to capture this image of Borzava range in Ukraine from Slovakia.

A good example of how to take pictures of long sights under low light conditions, balancing ISO Sensibility and Exposure.

Thank you for this input from Slovakia!
