We want to introduce a new category here!

Most times, while in flight, there is almost nothing interesting to see: limitless amounts of villages, clouds and sea.
But, some other times, there are magnificient views outside of our aircraft.
There is never a reason to leave the camera at home.
And to start, a beautiful flight over Central Pyrenees!

205 kilometers is such a distance that, when you are able to see though it, it seems like magic.
Ridges, snow caps, summits… Every detail in this picture is almost perfectly visible as a high pressure system set over northern Spain, allowing this clear views on sunset.
That day, not only Aneto was visible, but also Monte Perdido and Comaloforno.

Serra del Monte – Monte Viso | 158 km.

High quality input this time from Antoine, Canigó from St. Beaume at 302 km. A classic view that never gets old and even more with this image with superb detail and contrasts.
Antoine quotes: “A wonderful dusk that revealed a clear view of the Canigou and his surrounding, thanks to “udeuschle” I was able to know the max distance of this picture which is 302km. I was theoretically able to see mountains near 320km but they were hidden by clouds.”
