Such a wonderful place for tourism: trekking, oceans, volcanoes, surf and, of course, distant sights! What a fantastic way to end the day: looking at the highest summit in the Archipielago, Teide, at more than 200 km. away.
Thanks to Nelson for sharing this masterpiece with us!
We have of course a simulation by Ulrich Deuschle:
20 minutes away from Barcelona, there are a solitary mountains ; Parc de Garraf, where you can enjoy legendary sunsets.
In the photo, the mountain of Montsia seems an island, and in the left Serra d’Irta a loneliness and small island. But they are a range of mountains in the Mediterranean coast, between Barcelona and València.
The most distant mountain is Massís de Penyagolosa, 223 Km. away.
Addition note of M.Bret:
You can see also same panoramas in this other report that I photographied in 2012 . It’s in catalan sorry but it’s possible to read by google traductor. There’re details about Serra d’Irta also and other coastal ranges. Summit of Penyagolosa from that part of Garraf is not visible, only one part of a side of the mountain. The most big apparent mountain is Montsià and many people often confuse that silhouette of with Mallorca, an island which is usually very well appreciated from there on many other occasions. I often portray these silhouettes (Balearic Islands to the east, Penyagolosa to the south and the Pyrenees to the west and north) from these hills so close to Barcelona, especially in winter.

The Denali (or Mc.Kinley in english) peak seen with an extraordinary effect of multiple mirages (#fatamorgana) as it appeared majestically before the eyes of photographer Chuck Berray on a placid winter morning majestically behind the plain near the Anchorange region. Below, another image, by the same author, taken a couple of days earlier without the effect of the phenomenon. Thank you Chuck Berray for sharing it with us.
