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.
We are on a rush of fantastic pictures from sea level with this one taken in South America… 145 kilometers of pure clear air to a glacier peak next to Magellan strait.
William describes the picture as follows: “I was fortunate enough to be on the waterfront of Punta Arenas on a clear day. This is the view South over the Strait of Magellan to Monte Sarmiento. I could also see other peaks from the Cordillera Darwin further away to the South East but I cannot identify them as yet, Monte Darwin is 202kms from Punta Arenas.
In the village of La Almolda, next to the famous spanish city of Zaragoza, there is an ancient monastery on top an small hill (590 meters above sea level), with some of the greatest short-sight views of the Pyrenees.
From left to right, an overall view of National Park Posts Maladeta, starting with Cotiella peak, then Posets, Perdiguero, and the King of the Pyrenees, Aneto.
Beautiful image here from Charles, on a fantastic clear day in Canary Islands!
As the author says: “From the summit of Gran Canaria it is frequent to see Tenerife and the Teide (3718 m high). Sometimes when the visibility is very good, one can distinguish more details and colors.
In the pictures, Tenerife islands seems to fly, because the visibility below an inversion layer is strongly reduced.
In a clear day in Sierra Nevada, Spain, enjoying the recent snow, I noticed something rising over the horizon.
A very iconic mountain, La Sagra, was looking at us from 120 kilometers away. It is an isolated mountain with more than 2.ooo meters and a clear view over the rest of the area. Really a good sighting and also a visit worth it!
For the second picture please look the complete post! For more by J.Pierre Petit here.

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.
Fabrizio sent us this clear view of Mt. Rotondo at 170 km. on a windy Winter day.
Corse mountains can be seen from Southern Toscana when conditions are good, as in this case when wind and usually clear Winter air allowed the snow in the farthest peaks to be clearly seen above Montecristo and Isola del Giglio.
