Mont Blanc is always an iconic mountain.
Regardless of whether you are travelling by plane, by car next to Chamonix or doing some trekking 200 kilometers away, it is always a shape to recognize in the horizon, and even more when the day is as clean as this one here.
Beautiful details around the peak we can see in this image: while the surroundings are still covered with shadows, the summit as already met the sun and its orange colors are starting to fill the picture.
I now wonder how amazing it would had been to see this scene from the very summit that day.

Ses Illes Medes, are a small archipelago of the Costa Brava (Catalonia-Spain) and a protected reserve of marine fauna.

From the highest point of the Massís del Montseny (1706 m) the distance is not very long, only about 72 Kms, but often poor visibility does not allow them to be seen. On this occasion however, there was a great ally: The reflection of the sun in those just moments influenced the waters around them and the occasion could not be let out.

Mont Caro is an isolated mountain located very close to the Mediterranean Sea on the East coast of Spain.
Its height has made it famous for its hurricane force winds when a low pressure system comes close to our country and NE winds blow throught the Ebro valley nearby.
In this case, its height allows us to achieve magnificient views during the evening.
