Getting to see the Alps from the Pyrenees seemed an extremely difficult goal a few years ago. No photos existed, or at least were not published.
Achieving it in complete daylight without the help of the alignment of the sun or the dawn screen effect still seemed more difficult.
Alps sectors with more zoom, and a little over contrasted, to ease the view of the details. One album with other pics of that day can be found here. The panoramic simulation of Ulrich is available here.
The Doigt de Dieu was the most distant summit and the World Record for distant pictures until July of the same year. Currently World Record is from another summit of the Pyrinessalthough in this case with a contemplation before the sunrise.
High quality input this time from Antoine, Canigó from St. Beaume at 302 km. A classic view that never gets old and even more with this image with superb detail and contrasts.
Antoine quotes: “A wonderful dusk that revealed a clear view of the Canigou and his surrounding, thanks to “udeuschle” I was able to know the max distance of this picture which is 302km. I was theoretically able to see mountains near 320km but they were hidden by clouds.
We are on a rush of fantastic pictures from sea level with this one taken in South America… 145 kilometers of pure clear air to a glacier peak next to Magellan strait.
William describes the picture as follows: “I was fortunate enough to be on the waterfront of Punta Arenas on a clear day. This is the view South over the Strait of Magellan to Monte Sarmiento. I could also see other peaks from the Cordillera Darwin further away to the South East but I cannot identify them as yet, Monte Darwin is 202kms from Punta Arenas.
In the village of La Almolda, next to the famous spanish city of Zaragoza, there is an ancient monastery on top an small hill (590 meters above sea level), with some of the greatest short-sight views of the Pyrenees.
From left to right, an overall view of National Park Posts Maladeta, starting with Cotiella peak, then Posets, Perdiguero, and the King of the Pyrenees, Aneto.
Beautiful image here from Charles, on a fantastic clear day in Canary Islands!
As the author says: “From the summit of Gran Canaria it is frequent to see Tenerife and the Teide (3718 m high). Sometimes when the visibility is very good, one can distinguish more details and colors.
In the pictures, Tenerife islands seems to fly, because the visibility below an inversion layer is strongly reduced.
