High Light Summary


High Light: A Vision of Wild Scotland by Colin Prior

Colin Prior's work is about landscape photography at its limits. Shooting at the magic hours of dusk and dawn, he catches those rare moments when composition, fine light and colour combine to create a remarkable image. Each photograph captures fleeting moments of nature which will never repeat themselves exactly. The images verge on obsession - Prior camped out on the remotest peaks in Scotland to obtain them.

This stunning new collection documents the dynamic nature of the Highlands landscape and wildlife - and sounds a clarion call for a new, engaged naturalism. In a world where the environment is increasingly being damaged, Prior argues, we should regain touch with what's left of the natural landscape rather than rely solely on superimposed solutions. A key reason why the natural environment is now in peril is precisely because of failures to understand its dynamic, in-flux nature.

The portfolio combines breathtaking new examples of Prior's trademark panoramas - which continually appeal to the tourist/travel market - with a range of new medium-format images that push the boundaries of digital photography, of huge interest to his dedicated technical following.

High Light Reviews


After more than 20 years at the top of his craft, Colin has developed an almost uncanny ability to pre-visualise a photograph well before he trips the shutter ... This is a rare and beautiful record, a work of art, a magic portal through which we enter a higher spiritual plane. * Scots Magazine *
Prior's pictures spill majestically across two-page spreads, capturing vast expanses, distortion-free and with crystal clarity. * Laszlo Buhasz, The Scotsman *
Colin Prior has brought to the conventional coffee-table book of illustrations of Scotland's scenery a style ... revolutionary and thrilling. * Magnus Magnusson *
When he peers through his lens in the fleeting, ethereal light of dawn and dusk Colin sees not merely mountains and lochs and corries but the spiritual essence of the Scottish landscape. * Bruce Stannard, on Prior's SCOTLAND: THE WILD PLACES *
Stunning. * Photography Monthly *
Capturing images of his homeland at its most stunning. * Scottish Daily Mail *
A work of integrity and a labour of great love. * Sunday Herald *
