Scotland's Mountains Summary


Scotland's Mountains: A Landscape Photographer's View by Joe Cornish

Following the success of Scotland' s Coast, acclaimed landscape photographer Joe Cornish trained his lens on another outstanding feature of the country for which he holds so much affection - its mountains. He sets out to capture the unique character of each range, from the soaring peaks of the Southern Highlands to the fortress-like Torridonian and Assynt hills in the far north; from the Cuillin of Skye, almost Alpine in character, in the west, to the lofty Cairngorms, with their windswept plateaus and jewel-like ice formations to the east.

With a brilliant eye for a picture and a masterly use of light, Joe depicts not only the peaks and ridges, the cliffs and buttresses of each mountain range, but the corresponding valleys and glens, the deep lochs, fast-flowing burns and spectacular waterfalls that are as integral to the landscape as the mountains themselves.

Accompanying the photographs are Joe' s fascinating accounts of his experiences in each region. He describes the physical and creative challenges he faced in order to capture the images, and his reflections on the remarkable landscapes and features he encountered. The result is one of the most acutely observed, engaging and inspirational portraits of Scotland' s mountains ever published. It will delight not only Joe Cornish' s numerous admirers but anyone who is drawn to this most magical of landscapes.
