The profile of the Serra de Tramuntana in the north of Mallorca is visible from Barcelona several times throughout each year but few people realize.
The best place to achieve a beautiful view is from the Tibidabo mountain, the highest hill in the city. Great transparency days make Mallorca very easily to be seen with the naked eye and occupies a wide extension of the horizon.
The best moments usually be at dawn, especially in autumn and winter. However, this image was possible at sunset and even with a few clouds.
Formerly known as Denali by local natives, Mt. McKinley is the highest peak in N. America.
The peak has a large potential distant horizon and it is also found in an area of the planet where the air is usually free of pollution. The severe and changing weather also contributes to produce high transparency.
When it happens, the result may be one of the most magnificent views onEarth.
Sometimes, the mountainous landscape of Mallorca can be seen from some points in the Iberian Peninsula. From the highest elevations of the Montseny massif is where you can see the island in its greater length when the air is very clean.
Three and a half weeks before and after the winter solstice, the sun rises behind Sierra de Tramuntana in Mallorca island, as seen from a summit in southern Catalonia. This is helpful to portray those mountains, which would otherwise require higher transparency.
