Again another example of the great day that happened almoste 3 years ago, when almost all the peaks in the Pyrenees were able to be seen from a single viewing location.
Exceptionally good visibility conditions allowed us to see further than 250 kilometers away, covering the whole range, from the peaks in Navarra to the peaks in Cataluña.
In this case, Pica de Estats, the highest peak in Cataluña, is seen here 285 kilometers away.

Moving moutains, or refration doing its job in long distance pictures.
The above images show the very same mountains on the same day, just separated by a handful of minutes. In this time the layers of air are moving enough to change the direction of the beams of light, thus modifying the layout of the complete view.
As you can see, it almost seems that the mountains are growing in seconds!

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.
