Horizon: July 30 Photo a Day Challenge


A farther view depending on how far above sea level you are standing……….

Horizon A fascination and my inspiration in photography and painting for many years.

How far away is the horizon line?

According to Wikipedia:

” distance to the true horizon from an observer close to the Earth’s surface is about[2]{\displaystyle d\approx {\sqrt {2\,h\,R}}\,,}

where h is height above sea level and R is the Earth radius.”

There is the fascination for me- to stand high on a cliff or tall building enables a farther view of something that is not physically there at all.
