In our daily life, the horizon is usually a translucid distant line, where objects get dim after a short distance.
Imagine all things affecting visibility: Geometry, Meteorology: Air Pollutants, Atmospheric Physics… It may seem complex, but from time to time conditions arrange so that we can see farther than usual.
And there are moments where we can see longer than anyone else has seen before.
It requires a great deal of coincidence for all possible parameters to allign so that we can see ultra distant objects. Deep knowledge, precise planning and perfect execution are also in the game.
It is not easy to reveal those distant landscapes, but the result is absolutely worth it.
It makes us feel lucky to be there. Photographers are lucky to be there. And is also of big responsibility.
They are the only ones out there, with the beautiful task to capture this moments, and give them to the world to admire.
This is our collection of the farthest shots ever captured.
