Whoa. For anyone not familiar where this is, this is near Lake Placid (Whiteface Mountain) in the ADK's. Absolutely incredible shot.

Took this yesterday in Rancho Cucamonga and downtown as the crow flies is 43 miles away, incredible clarity for Socal as our heatwave ramps up and the Santa Ana winds get going.

Not really "far, far" but an unusual view. Coney Island to Manhattan is about 10 miles as the crow flies.

Here is one that's really impressive: Milwaukee visible from Grand Haven clear across Lake Michigan.



Source: http://www.mlive.com/news/muskegon/i...ee_seen_t.html

This was due to Atomospheric lensing when warm lake air is trapped under much denser colder air. This is over an astounding distance of 85 miles with no elevation difference between the two cities.



This is the Chicago skyline from St. Joseph Michigan, 60 miles across the Lake.

Oh and if the skyline looks like it's upside-down, that's because it is. The bending of the light flips the image.
