3 in 1: sea of ​​fog, red sky, white mountain

Floured in the Puigmal and the Sierra del Cadí this morning, in a dawn colored as has rarely been seen, with a light snowfall at night and wind clouds and a sea of ​​fog when daylight breaks. The images, in La Vanguardia's Readers' Photos, have been captured from Bellmunt, in Sant Pere de Torelló.

El Puigmal, in Alta Cerdanya, is the second highest mountain in the province of Girona, with 2914 meters, and is located on the border between Spain and France.

Located between the municipalities of Queralbs (Ripollès) and Err (Alta Cerdanya, Eastern Pyrenees), the Puigmal is the highest of the peaks that make up the so-called Gran Olla that surrounds the Vall de Núria.

It is a wide and rounded top. And its ascent is easy if the weather conditions are not very adverse. At its summit there is a forged iron cross and a plaque with verses by Jacint Verdaguer.

The Sierra del Cadí is a mountain range that divides the regions of Alt Urgell, Baixa Cerdanya and Berguedà. It extends from west to east for 22.6 kilometers, specifically from the Bancs pass to the Tancalaporta pass.

Together with the Sierra de Moixeró, the massif of Pedraforca and a large part of the Tosa d'Alp and the Puigllançada, this mountain range forms part of the Cadí-Moixeró Natural Park.

The phenomenon of the Pubilla de la Plana, the seas of fog, can last for days and even weeks if the conditions are favorable. In this case it can be seen from Bellmunt, at 1246 meters above sea level, from where a good part of the landscape can be dominated.
