Apennines from Velebit
|[ Sizes: Orig | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
View to remember. Long spine of Italian boot or the Apennines stretching on the other side of Adriatic Sea, seen from slopes of Sveto Brdo (1751m) on South Velebit at sunset. Most fascinating was state of the atmosphere which was such as it actually didn’t exist, no humidity, dust or stuff that usually lowers the transparence. Everything above the horizon was crystal visible. This is best visibility I've ever seen. Head left of the middle is Corno Grande (2912m), highest peak of Apennines, 270km/170miles away! Far right is Monti Sibillini group with Monte Vettore (2476m). Right of the middle is Monti della Laga group with Monte Gorzano (2458 m). Further left, towards south, Majella group (not on photo) was also visible with its highest peak Monte Amaro (2737m) which is around 300km/182miles away. January 31st 2004. This photo shows similar view of Apennines during day, from little bit different position. P.S. Chandra recognized all the peaks, thanks man!
