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!

Fabrizio sent us this clear view of Mt. Rotondo at 170 km. on a windy Winter day.
Corse mountains can be seen from Southern Toscana when conditions are good, as in this case when wind and usually clear Winter air allowed the snow in the farthest peaks to be clearly seen above Montecristo and Isola del Giglio.
This distant view has been also published on sites as stoppingdown.

Radoslaw has sent us this amazing picture of Tatra Mountains where all distant peaks covered are shown in an amazing detail, with all ridges and summits perfectly defined and appearing beautifully above the horizon.
This image is a clear example of how snow covered mountains are key for distant obervations, together with a very clear air as the one this picture suggests.

The profile of the Serra de Tramuntana in the north of Mallorca is visible from Barcelona several times throughout each year but few people realize.
The best place to achieve a beautiful view is from the Tibidabo mountain, the highest hill in the city. Great transparency days make Mallorca very easily to be seen with the naked eye and occupies a wide extension of the horizon.
The best moments usually be at dawn, especially in autumn and winter. However, this image was possible at sunset and even with a few clouds.
