One of the traditional lines of sights of Spain, that has been many times captured during the last decades, now has a place in Beyond Horizons as well.
A very cold and windy morning of February, just after the sunrise, the conditions were met to achieve more than 200 kilometers, even though the conditions averall were not so good.
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.

Antoine always impresses us with beautiful high quality pictures from the area around Corsica and this time is no exception.
Moreover, this is the first time that we publish an image taken during night time, yet another proof of the incredible visibility and clear air that we had during the last August 12th
We can see below that the same mountains were phtographed during the sunset, at night and during sunrise of the following day (in IR)
Thank you Antoine for sharing with us this views!

Great start for the new category “Iceland”!
We didn’t have any picture from this beautiful island before, but Josep Manchado has surprised us with this great view of the volcano Snaeffeljokull.
The picture is taken from near Reykyavik at almost sea level. Always impressive when the silhouettes of distant peaks appear above the horizon, and even more when is it more than 100 kilometers away

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 beautiful 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.
