Scotland Mountain Photography
Scotland's Mountains. A Landscape Photographer's View. Following the success of Scotland's Coast, acclaimed landscape photographer Joe Cornish has 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 in the south 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, and the deep lochs, fast-flowing burns and spectacular waterfalls that are as integral to the landscape as the mountains themselves. Accompanying the portfolios of images 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. Joe Cornish is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest contemporary landscape photographers. He has lectured and exhibited in Britain and overseas and written a number of successful books, including Scotland's Coast, published by Aurum, and First Light, published under the Aurum imprint Argentum. He has co-authored two other titles for Argentum: Working the Light and Developing Vision and Style.History of Scotland. Scotland's Mountains: A Landscape Photographer's View.
