Another great Picture from Charles, this time from the Coast of Slovenia, where in a clear Autumn day he was able to spot the Alps in the horizon.

A classic view of the far distant mountains over the sea line, crossing over the entire width of the Adriatic Sea.

Usually, the light of the afternoon (and the sunrise) will help to detect distant objects, as it improves the contrast ratio between the mountains and the background.

Across the flat plains of Northern Spain – although, a plateau – one can clearly see the Mountain Ridge that separates this plateau from the Ocean.

In this magic December morning, the view is incredibly clear, up to the point to see most of the details in the distant mountains with perfect clarity.

Thank you for Jose A. for sharing it with us!

The Canary Islands are a place with great potential for Distant Sights, mainly for the great height and the distance between the islands. Usually, the pictures we have received involve the Teide Peak (3.718 m) – this highest in Spain – but in this case the view is from Gran Canaria onto Lanzarote, the first of its kind!

Thank you Charles for sharing it with us.

294 KM | Canigou – Mont Ventoux

Perfectly seen under the light of the rising sun, the silhouette of Mont Ventoux!

Mont Ventoux is a mountain clearly known for the Tour de France, when it provides everyone with a fantastic show.

Nevertheless, this is not the only show provided by Mont Ventoux, as it is an iconic landmark as seen from Canigou, at the other side of Golfe du Lyon.

The view of its shadow, together with the lights of the villages below is something remarkable.

Just as the sun was rising over the horizon, Adrian managed to capture this image of Borzava range in Ukraine from Slovakia.

A good example of how to take pictures of long sights under low light conditions, balancing ISO Sensibility and Exposure.

Thank you for this input from Slovakia!

252 KM | Canigó, Pyrenees – Marseille

Small portion of a very wide panorama with more details and quality. The image was not observed with the naked eye or with a normal telephoto lens because the atmospheric transparency was not good enough, but it appeared thanks to infrared radiation and the photoshop process. Almost sure it’s the first image of the basilica obtained from the summit of the Canigó.

For a couple of centuries many observers and photographers have observed the silhouette of the Canigó from Marseille on certain occasions, but never an image in the opposite direction had been obtained, showing Marseille.

Until now.
