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.

Happy New Year!
There is no better way to start this 2018 that with a picture taken from a mountain of more than 4.000 meters!
I would say this is the first image we have like this and the definition os really great.
Monte Viso is a very recognizable mountain in the horizon when the air is clear enough to see it.
Now we wait for the opposite picture, as the view from Monte Viso should be impressive as well!

Here we have a great idea to see the main chain of the Alps from the distance with great results!
And it is even next to the magnificient place of “Lago di Garda”, so double the reason to go there and have a look. It seems it will be impressive to see a clear sunset from there on a good day!
Thank you Adrian for sharing this with us.

Antoine always impresses us with beautiful high quality pictures from the area around Corsica and this time is no exception.
Moreover, this is the first time that we publish an image taken during night time, yet another proof of the incredible visibility and clear air that we had during the last August 12th
We can see below that the same mountains were phtographed during the sunset, at night and during sunrise of the following day (in IR)
Thank you Antoine for sharing with us this views!

Here we have an amazing view taken from near the Apennines, in a Natural Park called Parco Naturalle delle Capanne di Marcarolo.
A place with a great potential for distant sights, as it offers a very good position to view over the surrounding mountains: all the Eastern Alps at once!

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.
