The prominent Canigó, photographed from Allauch, a strategic location (to make photos) next to Marseille, at 320 meters high. To illustrate this singular view we have chosen two images of Alain Origné, an expert photographer specialist in this type of portrays.
The distant silhouette of that mountain from this part of France it’s only perceptible thanks to the influence of atmospheric refraction, as the trajectory of rectilinear vision passes beneath the line of the sea. Actually many people already call “Canigó effect” to the fact when it’s only possible to see a silhouette thanks to atmospheric refraction.
By the other hand, the conjunction with the sun. Obviously it was not coincidence. In concret, from Marseille the succes occur around 8 February and 1 November. Some photographers from distant horizons as Alaign Origné take advantage of the dates to achieve the best images.
