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.
From a nice village in the Apenins Mountains in Italy there is a very over the Alps that can be really beautiful. Our great contributor Fabrizio Giudici is located near this magnificient viewpoint and always tries to find the best possible picture of Europe’s highest mountains.
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”.

The above images show the very same mountains on the same day, just separated by a handful of minutes. In this time the layers of air are moving enough to change the direction of the beams of light, thus modifying the layout of the complete view.
As you can see, it almost seems that the mountains are growing in seconds!
