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.

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.

May be  the most distant sunrise photographied in the world.

Five years ago, we managed to portray for the first time the cornices of the Alps from the Pyrenees and it was precisely this mountain our goal from the Canigó. In this new occasion the objective has been to portray it better and from further away, from the top of the Noufonts and this is the result. The Estrop partially eclipsing the great solar disk.

Perhaps the astro-landscape photographed further away on our planet, thanks to the peculiar geography that extends between the Alps and the Pyrenees, the clean air and the sun.

Milan has sent us these pictures of the Italian, Austrian and Slovenian Alps, as seen from the beautiful Slovenian village of Izola, very close to Trieste city.

The photographs shows us a large portion of this important mountainous area rising directly above the Adriatic sea. In order to better appreciate the distant details, all original full-sized photographs have been cropped.

Josep quotes: “At sunrise, there was not only a clear view of the Pyrenees (from Andorra to Panticosa) but also Moncayo peak was visible, in the “Sistema Iberico”, at 218 km. away.”

If there is a Master when it comes to photograph Canigó peak, he is Bruno.

We are used to have from him several high quality pictures of Canigó taken from various locations around Marseille, and in this case it is no exception.

It comes with a great deal of planification and preparation to capture the sun setting just against the desired target, and in the picture above this is done with absolute mastery.

Canary Islands are full of good viewing locations.

A volcanic archipelago with high mountains where the horizon is the ocean itself has to bring many options!

Usually is El Teide (3.718 meters above sea level) where usually the pictures are taken from, but if you can see many places from its summit, then the opposite view should also be possible… And here we have one of them.

A fantastic sunrise view of El Teide from El Hierro island, one of the most recent volanic activity.
