If there is a picture that we always wanted to get is the view from Canigó peak looking North East… The complete chain of the Alpes Maritimes together with Mount Ventoux can be perfectly seen on the horizon.
And left of Mount Ventoux an small line of mountains shows up: Barre des Écrins, one of the greatest lines in Europe at 412 km.
No one could ever imagine that such a picture can be achieved in mid Summer, but August 12 is a day that we will remember forever.
Long before sunrise the brilliant horizon cutted the silhouettes above Golfe du Lion and the challenge was achieved.

Here we have an amazing view taken from near the Apennines, in a Natural Park called Parco Naturalle delle Capanne di Marcarolo.
A place with a great potential for distant sights, as it offers a very good position to view over the surrounding mountains: all the Eastern Alps at once!

Thank you Yves Courtel for showing us this beutiful picture of one of the very best mountains in Europe: Mont Blanc.
Target in our mountaineering life for may of us, now we can see this peak from as far as 332 km., as seen from the summit of Plomb du Cantal, in the central France massif.
Crystal clear view and perfect atmosphere! Who know how far it could go if some more peaks were shown in the horizon!
As Yves quotes: “It was a perfect day, with the mountains showing up half hour before sunrise. The mountains dissapeared once the sun rose.”
For those trying to reach this summit for a similar view, it is easy to access through a 1:45 hours hike.

Impressive and clear picture of Mt. Rainier, elevating to 4.392 meters above sea level, captured from almost this very same sea level. 
It is always a very good sign of a clear atmosphere when such a picture can be taken so close to the ground.
Thank you Patrick for sharing with us this picture!

Today we go to a different continent to continue going on with our distant landscapes. Maybe not into the mark of the +100km. but the definition and clearness of this image absolutely deserves to have a place on Beyond Horizons. After a long way up to my first 4.000 meters peak, Anti Atlas is shown magnificient in the horizon.
