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.

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.

205 kilometers is such a distance that, when you are able to see though it, it seems like magic.

Ridges, snow caps, summits… Every detail in this picture is almost perfectly visible as a high pressure system set over northern Spain, allowing this clear views on sunset.
