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.

The prominent Canigó, photographed from Allauch, a strategic location (to make photos) next to Marseille, at 320 meters high. To illustrate this singular view we have chosen two images of Alain Origné, an expert photographer specialist in this type of portrays.

The distant silhouette of that mountain from this part of France it’s only perceptible thanks to the influence of atmospheric refraction, as the trajectory of rectilinear vision passes beneath the line of the sea. Actually many people already call “Canigó effect” to the fact when it’s only possible to see a silhouette thanks to atmospheric refraction.

By the other hand, the conjunction with the sun. Obviously it was not coincidence. In concret, from Marseille the succes occur around 8 February and 1 November. Some photographers from distant horizons as Alaign Origné take advantage of the dates to achieve the best images.

After a long day maintaining its status as the third highest peak in the Pyrenees range, Monte Perdido is covered with red light from the setting sun.

Actually, this is the reason why Pyrenees have this name: Pyros in latin language, means fire.

Mont Caro is an isolated mountain located very close to the Mediterranean Sea on the East coast of Spain.

Its height has made it famous for its hurricane force winds when a low pressure system comes close to our country and NE winds blow throught the Ebro valley nearby.

In this case, its height allows us to achieve magnificient views during the evening.

When I arrived to the Summit of Mont Caro, that can be easily reached by car, the situation was not so good, as the mountains in the distance were visible but the details were missed up by daytime turbulence and light scattering.

The farthest sunset ever captured!

The silhouette of the Canigó massif and Pic de Prats de Bacivers (Pyreness) in front of the sun with a superior mirage effect .

It’s probably currently the farthest sharp photo (*1) of a horizon made from another land point and and possibly also the most distant setting sun photographed. In this regard it’s a new world record.
