The distant ladscapes, now present in the Guinness book website.

We’re pleased to realize that finally the Guiness World Records Organization has incorporated among its themes the references about distant lansdcapes. and in concret the longest line of sight on earth photographed (earth to earth), which was not on its menus until now and we see that it has echoed the current one, already for more than 5 years, portrayed from the Finestrelles peak (Eastern Pyrenees) to the Alps.

Obviously we’ve already related about it from a long time, as well as the previous records ones that we previously achieved and therefore it’s not a news for us, but anyway we appreciate the official visibility in the Guiness Book (or the website) of international reference for all kinds of deeds or dreams where the best known to the strangest things or little thought by most mortals concur.

Now we wonder: When and where will we get a new record? All of us and you (readers, friends of the website) can try it. Dreams are beautiful and, in relation it, also, many other adventures are possible in different parts of the world and dreams of new contemplations very far away can come true.

Let’s keep care the planet, our clean atmosphere. And we will see it!!.

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.
