205 kilometers is such a distance that, when you are able to see though it, it seems like magic.

Ridges, snow caps, summits… Every detail in this picture is almost perfectly visible as a high pressure system set over northern Spain, allowing this clear views on sunset.

There is no surprise here that from Tenerife, one of the Canary Islands in mid – Atlantic, one can see the other six Islands.

Standing at 3.718 meters above sea level, it provides a clear view at over 300 km.

In this case, although no that far, La Palma Island is seen above the tree line, at about 2.000 meters above sea level.

For those that know this website for a while, you will notice that this is not the first picture taken from Poqueira refuge, in Sierra Nevada, South of Spain,

This magnificient view was also observed and captured almost (exactly) 5 years ago, from the same place, and at the sime time.

This is a great place to see Africa from Europe, and one of the most beautiful ones.

Regardless of whether you are travelling by plane, by car next to Chamonix or doing some trekking 200 kilometers away, it is always a shape to recognize in the horizon, and even more when the day is as clean as this one here.

Beautiful details around the peak we can see in this image: while the surroundings are still covered with shadows, the summit as already met the sun and its orange colors are starting to fill the picture.

I now wonder how amazing it would had been to see this scene from the very summit that day.

Happy New Year!

There is no better way to start this 2018 that with a picture taken from a mountain of more than 4.000 meters!

I would say this is the first image we have like this and the definition os really great.

Monte Viso is a very recognizable mountain in the horizon when the air is clear enough to see it.

Now we wait for the opposite picture, as the view from Monte Viso should be impressive as well!

Here we have a very good picture from our recent contributor David Guenot, showing us the beautiful morning lights over the Pic the Soularac as seen from Samatan, France.

A calm morning on that day provided the very specific conditions that are needed for long distant sights, and the result is impressive.

We  look forward to more pictures from you David!

Here it is a perfect example of that.

Even with not the perfect conditions, Monte Perdido is always a landmark in the horizon when trying to see the Pyrenees from a long distance.

It is a mountain that can be easily seen from Spain, but that is almost hidden behind other high peaks when is seen from France. This may be the reason for its name, as Monte Perdido is Spanish means “Lost Mountain”.
