Un photographe français photographie les Alpes depuis les Pyrénées - Alu Art Mountains

A French photographer photographs the Alps from the Pyrenees

A French photographer, Mark Bret , broke the world record for long-distance photography by taking a photo of the Alps from the Pyrenees. The photo, taken on February 23, 2023, shows the Écrins massif, a massif in the French Alps, about 440 kilometers away.

An incredible feat

This feat is remarkable because it is the greatest distance ever photographed between two places on Earth. It is also notable because it was made with relatively simple equipment.

Careful preparation

Bret said he had been planning the shot for several years. He first learned that visibility between the Alps and the Pyrenees was possible during special weather conditions, including low air pollution and clear skies.

He then searched for the best place to take the photo. The Pic de Finestrelles was the ideal location, as it offers breathtaking views of the Pyrenees and the Alps.

Specialized equipment

Bret used a telescope and a DSLR camera to take the photo. He also used a tripod to stabilize the camera and prevent vibration.

The photo was taken with a 30 second exposure. Bret used a wide angle lens to capture as much of the scenery as possible.

A photographic artist

Bret is a professional photographer who lives in France. He specializes in landscape and astronomy photography. He has won numerous awards for his photography, including the award for best landscape photographer in France in 2022.


Bret's feat is proof of the talent and passion of this photographer. It also shows that the beauty of nature can be captured even at incredible distances.
