Entering in the very honored category of 200+ km for just a thousand meters here we have this impressive image from Daniele, covering a lot of distance even from almost sea level!
Danielle quotes: “Picture taken before the sunset from Monteluro at the height of 189 meters, of Velebit Mountains approx 200 KM over the Adriatic sea with a perfect clear sky due to Bora wind.”

After a long day maintaining its status as the third highest peak in the Pyrenees range, Monte Perdido is covered with red light from the setting sun.
Actually, this is the reason why Pyrenees have this name: Pyros in latin language, means fire.

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.

Another great picture from Radoslaw is what we have here this time. And this is an special picture.
Just because the peak portrayed here is geometrically not visible from the observation point (the highest peak in Poland). That small Romanian peak is appearing due to refraction, that curves the light beams across the atmosphere and allows hidden objects to show as if they were visible.
A great example of how refraction is something to very care about in distant observations.

Formerly known as Denali by local natives, Mt. McKinley is the highest peak in N. America.
The peak has a large potential distant horizon and it is also found in an area of the planet where the air is usually free of pollution. The severe and changing weather also contributes to produce high transparency.
When it happens, the result may be one of the most magnificent views on Earth.

A random sunday of February 2014, with rather low probabilities of success, I went to Mont Caro near Ebro river for trying to photograph Pyrenees range.
Even with lots of clouds and significant cold weather, the images managed to became quite impressive.
