Even with not the perfect conditions, Monte Perdido is always a landmark in the horizon when trying to see the Pyrenees from a long distance.
It is a mountain that can be easily seen from Spain, but that is almost hidden behind other high peaks when is seen from France. This may be the reason for its name, as Monte Perdido is Spanish means “Lost Mountain”.

Again another example of the great day that happened almoste 3 years ago, when almost all the peaks in the Pyrenees were able to be seen from a single viewing location.
Exceptionally good visibility conditions allowed us to see further than 250 kilometers away, covering the whole range, from the peaks in Navarra to the peaks in Cataluña.
In this case, Pica de Estats, the highest peak in Cataluña, is seen here 285 kilometers away.

Moving moutains, or refration doing its job in long distance pictures.
The above images show the very same mountains on the same day, just separated by a handful of minutes. In this time the layers of air are moving enough to change the direction of the beams of light, thus modifying the layout of the complete view.
As you can see, it almost seems that the mountains are growing in seconds!

Take a look at the building in the bottom right corner!

Here we have a great idea to see the main chain of the Alps from the distance with great results!
And it is even next to the magnificient place of “Lago di Garda”, so double the reason to go there and have a look. It seems it will be impressive to see a clear sunset from there on a good day!
Thank you Adrian for sharing this with us.
