Winter Morning view of the Alps
Photograph achieved in a day of great transparency, from the Bastiments with little focal length to frame some silhouettes of the Alps and Ventoux behind of the Gulf of Lion, in complete daylight.

Getting to see the Alps from the Pyrenees seemed an extremely difficult goal a few years ago. No photos existed, or at least were not published. Achieving it in complete daylight without the help of the alignment of the sun or the dawn screen effect still seemed more difficult.
Alps sectors with more zoom, and a little over contrasted, to ease the view of the details. One album with other pics of that day can be found here. The panoramic simulation of Ulrich is available here. The Doigt de Dieu was the most distant summit and the World Record for distant pictures until July of the same year. Currently World Record is from another summit of the Pyriness although in this case with a contemplation before the sunrise.
