Superior mirage?

Sometimes Kamchatka air becomes very clear and it is possible to see very far. Several times I have seen these distant mountains at the very edge of the horizon as if they appear behind the Pacific ocean. This photo is taken with a powerful 500mm lens. I am still not sure what did I photograph...

  1. Fascinating and beautiful. But to understand what we're looking at, please tell us:
    *where* was this photo taken from, and
    in which *direction* were you facing?
