The silhouette of the Canigó massif and Pic de Prats de Bacivers (Pyreness) in front of the sun with a superior mirage effect .

It’s probably currently the farthest sharp photo (*1) of a horizon made from another land point and and possibly also the most distant setting sun photographed. In this regard it’s a new world record.

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 on Earth.
