Mountain Art Gallery
One of my favourite mountain photographs was taken in 1982 during a stormy and atmospheric ascent of Sgorr Dhearg (1024m), above Ballachulish in Scotland. For many years the enlarged framed print hung on my dining room wall and raised two questions from those who viewed it. Was that a colour photograph and was the mountaineer ascending or descending the ridge. Both questions are easy to answer. First, what looks like a monochrome print is the original non-manipulated colour image. Secondly, the climber is going up but taking care to keep away from the edge – not wanting to be photographed as he plunges through the overhanging snow (cornice). For me this picture confirmed my love and began my life-long interest in mountain photography and therefore deserves a special spot on my website. To see more of my mountain pictures please visit the Mountain Photographer TM website gallery. The images are available to buy as simple prints and limited edition offers in a range of sizes and formats.
