Happy New Year!
There is no better way to start this 2018 that with a picture taken from a mountain of more than 4.000 meters!
I would say this is the first image we have like this and the definition os really great.
Monte Viso is a very recognizable mountain in the horizon when the air is clear enough to see it.
Now we wait for the opposite picture, as the view from Monte Viso should be impressive as well!

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.

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!

Getting to see the Alps from the Pyrenees seemed an extremely difficult goal a few years ago.  No photos existed, or at least were not published. Achieving it in complete daylight without the help of the alignment of the sun or the dawn screen effect still seemed more difficult.

Alps sectors with more zoom, and a little over contrasted, to ease the view of the details.  One album with other pics of that day can be found here. The panoramic simulation of Ulrich is available here. The Doigt de Dieu was the most distant summit and the World Record for distant pictures until July of the same year. Currently World Record is from  another summit of the Pyriness although in this case with a contemplation before the sunrise.

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!
