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.
Excellent site by the way.
Regards
William”

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.”

In a clear day in Sierra Nevada, Spain, enjoying the recent snow, I noticed something rising over the horizon.
A very iconic mountain, La Sagra, was looking at us from 120 kilometers away. It is an isolated mountain with more than 2.ooo meters and a clear view over the rest of the area. Really a good sighting and also a visit worth it!

As the year comes to an end, the snow in the alps is still missing, so perfect timing and conditions for a fast climbing to one of the easiest most convinient peaks in the German pre-alps.
Weather was almost perfect, the sun was heating the scene from the sky and the air was crystal clear. From the top of this modest summit (not even reaching 2.000 meters above sea level) the view covered all the alps in the German – Austrian region, plus other interesting summits around.
