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.

Fabrizio sent us this clear view of Mt. Rotondo at 170 km. on a windy Winter day.
Corse mountains can be seen from Southern Toscana when conditions are good, as in this case when wind and usually clear Winter air allowed the snow in the farthest peaks to be clearly seen above Montecristo and Isola del Giglio.
This distant view has been also published on sites as stoppingdown.
