Suprising view of the highest peaks in the western sector of the Serra de Tramuntana de Mallorca (Puig de Galatzó and Mola de s’Esclop) framed by the solar disk, photographed from the southeast of the Iberian Peninsula, crossing the Mediterranean Sea for about 258 km.
A very faint Bastiments peak is almost entirely covered under the horizon, if not for the great conditions of Anticiclonic Inversion, which lead to one of the farthest In-Land (withour covering the sea) Lines of Sight in Spain.
For a couple of centuries many observers and photographers have observed the silhouette of the Canigó from Marseille on certain occasions, but never an image in the opposite direction had been obtained, showing Marseille.
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.
