The three highest elevations in Alicante province seen from Puig de Galatzó top, Mallorca, at sunset. The sun behind a scene hugely helps to increase contrast and visibilty of very distant objects, usually invisible.

At sunset, during a hike to the summit of Puig de Galatzó (1.026 m.) at Tramuntana hills, I was able to spot these mountain tops in Spain’s mainland over the Mediterranean. My premium super telephoto lens combined with the 1.6x factor of my APS-C reflex camera allowed me to obtain great detail of the distant silhouettes far on the horizon.

Puig de Galatzó rocky mountain is a very popular hike. It is easily reachable in about 1 hour walking from the car. After Puigpunyent town, take the road to ‘La Reserva’ and then follow up to the ‘Font des Pí’ in the forest. A track starts from here to the top. Weather at the top was windy NW, dry, very cold and clear skies. Visibilty was excellent.
