Swifts are long distance birds.
They are used to travel around the globe in order to look for the best climate, and in this journey they stay in Africa during Norhern Hemisphere winter months and then travel North once the summer sets.
As you can see in the picture, there are some swifts flying around, what tells us that summer is approaching. Nevertheless, this is the only sign of warm weather, as the mountains still keep the snow longer than ever.
It has been one of the snowiest seasons in the Pyrenees so far, and this fantastic picture from David Guenot shows it very well.
Thanks for sharing!

Again, El Pueyo.
Again, the Pyrenees.
But there is nothing like being in this small hill aside of the main chain of the mountain ridge, with almost all the main summits clearly visible.
From here, one can see Posets peak (2nd highest in Pyrenees), but also Aneto (the highest) and Monte Perdido (3rd on the run).
Such a fantastic place I will stay for the whole day (with a pair of binoculars).

One of the best hills aside the Pyrenees with the best views over the entire chain is located in Barbastro, Huesca.
An small hill, about 150 meters above sea level, provides the elevation needed to watch over the surrounding terrain and have a direct face – to – face view with one of the highest mountains in the Pyrenees.

Turó de l’Home – Illes Medes | 72 km.

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.

Today we go to a different continent to continue going on with our distant landscapes. Maybe not into the mark of the +100km. but the definition and clearness of this image absolutely deserves to have a place on Beyond Horizons. After a long way up to my first 4.000 meters peak, Anti Atlas is shown magnificient in the horizon.

As the year comes to an end, the snow in the alps is still missing, so perfect timing and conditions for a fast climbing to one of the easiest most convinient peaks in the German pre-alps.
Weather was almost perfect, the sun was heating the scene from the sky and the air was crystal clear. From the top of this modest summit (not even reaching 2.000 meters above sea level) the view covered all the alps in the German – Austrian region, plus other interesting summits around.
