View Of The Lonely Mountain From The Carrock Can't Post

A lot of people have said that the final scenes with the view of The Lonely Mountain in the distance was a bit unbelievable they say that there's no way you could see it from that distance. they say it was done for "artistic purpose",well I'm not much of an arguer but I'll state my case "it was in the book" a lot of people tend to forget it at least I've never seen anyone else mention it. At the end of the chapter "The Return Journey" Page 248 in my book says:

"At last they came up the long road, and reached the very pass where the goblins had captured them before. But they came to that high point at morning, and looking backward they saw a white sun shining over the outstretched lands. There behind lay Mirkwood, blue in the distance, and darkly green at the nearer edge even in the spring. There far away was the Lonely Mountain on the edge of eyesight. On it's highest peak snow yet unmelted was gleaming pale"

So in Tolkien's Hobbit you can see the Lonely Mountain from the High pass of the Misty mountains (at least on a good day) so why do people refuse to think it's possible? I know Jackson has moved mountains before (literally) he changed the landscape of Mordor so Barad-Dur was the first thing you see when you enter. and you can see Mordor from Helm's Deep, in the book Legolas glimpsed MInas Tirith and Mordor From Edoras albeit he has elf eyes though, but back on topic is it really that unbelievable to see the Lonely Mountain fron the Carrock?
