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.

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.

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”.

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!

Ses Illes Medes, are a small archipelago of the Costa Brava (Catalonia-Spain) and a protected reserve of marine fauna.

From the highest point of the Massís del Montseny (1706 m) the distance is not very long, only about 72 Kms, but often poor visibility does not allow them to be seen.

On this occasion however, there was a great ally: The reflection of the sun in those just moments influenced the waters around them and the occasion could not be let out.

Entering in the very honored category of 200+ km for just a thousand meters here we have this impressive image from Daniele, covering a lot of distance even from almost sea level!

Danielle quotes: “Picture taken before the sunset from Monteluro at the height of 189 meters, of Velebit Mountains approx 200 KM over the Adriatic sea with a perfect clear sky due to Bora wind.
