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!

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.

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”.

Again another example of the great day that happened almoste 3 years ago, when almost all the peaks in the Pyrenees were able to be seen from a single viewing location.

Exceptionally good visibility conditions allowed us to see further than 250 kilometers away, covering the whole range, from the peaks in Navarra to the peaks in Cataluña.

Moving moutains, or refration doing its job in long distance pictures.

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!

One of the traditional lines of sights of Spain, that has been many times captured during the last decades, now has a place in Beyond Horizons as well.

A very cold and windy morning of February, just after the sunrise, the conditions were met to achieve more than 200 kilometers, even though the conditions averall were not so good.

Take a look at the building in the bottom right corner!

Here we have a great idea to see the main chain of the Alps from the distance with great results!

And it is even next to the magnificient place of “Lago di Garda”, so double the reason to go there and have a look. It seems it will be impressive to see a clear sunset from there on a good day!

Thank you Adrian for sharing this with us.
