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.

Thank you Yves Courtel for showing us this beautiful picture of one of the very best mountains in Europe: Mont Blanc.

Target in our mountaineering life for may of us, now we can see this peak from as far as 332 km., as seen from the summit of Plomb du Cantal, in the central France massif.

Crystal clear view and perfect atmosphere! Who know how far it could go if some more peaks were shown in the horizon!

As Yves quotes: “It was a perfect day, with the mountains showing up half hour before sunrise. The mountains dissapeared once the sun rose.”

For those trying to reach this summit for a similar view, it is easy to access through a 1:45 hours hike.

High quality input this time from Antoine, Canigó from St. Beaume at 302 km. A classic view that never gets old and even more with this image with superb detail and contrasts.

Antoine quotes: “A wonderful dusk that revealed a clear view of the Canigou and his surrounding, thanks to “udeuschle” I was able to know the max distance of this picture which is 302km. I was theoretically able to see mountains near 320km but they were hidden by clouds.
