After a long day maintaining its status as the third highest peak in the Pyrenees range, Monte Perdido is covered with red light from the setting sun.
Actually, this is the reason why Pyrenees have this name: Pyros in latin language, means fire.

Mont Caro is an isolated mountain located very close to the Mediterranean Sea on the East coast of Spain.
Its height has made it famous for its hurricane force winds when a low pressure system comes close to our country and NE winds blow throught the Ebro valley nearby.
In this case, its height allows us to achieve magnificient views during the evening.

It’s probably currently the farthest sharp photo (*1) of a horizon made from another land point and and possibly also the most distant setting sun photographed. In this regard it’s a new world record.

The profile of the Serra de Tramuntana in the north of Mallorca is visible from Barcelona several times throughout each year but few people realize.
The best place to achieve a beautiful view is from the Tibidabo mountain, the highest hill in the city. Great transparency days make Mallorca very easily to be seen with the naked eye and occupies a wide extension of the horizon.
The best moments usually be at dawn, especially in autumn and winter. However, this image was possible at sunset and even with a few clouds.
