Mont Caro is an isolated mountain located very close to the Mediterranean Sea on the East coast of Spain.
Its height has made it famous for its hurricane force winds when a low pressure system comes close to our country and NE winds blow throught the Ebro valley nearby.
In this case, its height allows us to achieve magnificient views during the evening.

When I arrived to the Summit of Mont Caro, that can be easily reached by car, the situation was not so good, as the mountains in the distance were visible but the details were missed up by daytime turbulence and light scattering.

But situation changed as the sun was going down to the horizon, and the air in the middle was starting to become darker. This effect, together with the mountains being continuously illuminated, allowed visibility to increase as much as it can be seen on the image.
