A very faint Bastiments peak is almost entirely covered under the horizon, if not for the great conditions of Anticiclonic Inversion, which lead to one of the farthest In-Land (withour covering the sea) Lines of Sight in Spain.

Josep quotes: “At sunrise, there was not only a clear view of the Pyrenees (from Andorra to Panticosa) but also Moncayo peak was visible, in the “Sistema Iberico”, at 218 km. away.”

If there is a Master when it comes to photograph Canigó peak, he is Bruno.

We are used to have from him several high quality pictures of Canigó taken from various locations around Marseille, and in this case it is no exception.

It comes with a great deal of planification and preparation to capture the sun setting just against the desired target, and in the picture above this is done with absolute mastery.

Canary Islands are full of good viewing locations.

A volcanic archipelago with high mountains where the horizon is the ocean itself has to bring many options!

Usually is El Teide (3.718 meters above sea level) where usually the pictures are taken from, but if you can see many places from its summit, then the opposite view should also be possible… And here we have one of them.

A fantastic sunrise view of El Teide from El Hierro island, one of the most recent volanic activity.

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.
