Book Description

11 July 2013
Have you ever wondered what the finest mountains in Scotland are? Perhaps you hadn't before now; perhaps you have an appreciation or passion, but haven't gone to the bother of compiling a list. Maybe you already have a firm idea of which are the best to climb, the ones with the greatest views or simply the most photogenic. John Parminter set about researching and investigating what the finest mountains in Scotland really are, then explored and photographed them. His curiosity took him on a journey full of rewarding experiences, interesting discoveries and memorable sights. He climbed and reacquainted himself with old favourites, sought out hidden and unfamiliar mountains and was pleasantly surprised by unexpected and beautiful scenes. All the Highland areas are covered, from the picturesque region of the Trossachs in the south, sweeping up through the rugged central area and visiting Ben Nevis on the way, before proceeding through the remote coastal glens as far as the majestic beauty of Ben Loyal in the north. John visits the bold hills of the Cairngorms before finishing his journey on the islands and the magnificent Cuillin. Over three years of passion, excitement, toil and frustrations have gone into capturing these images, culminating in Scotland's Fifty Finest Mountains - A Photographic Exploration. The book will appeal to fans of photography, outdoor walkers, residents of Scotland and fans of its scenery.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Unique Book On Scotland's Mountains 22 Sep 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Many books have a habit of displaying the best picture on the cover and the interior can be disappointing. That is not the case here as not only does the book does have a spectacular scene on the cover, it is full of brilliant mountain scenes taken from locations not seen in other books.

The only reason I have not given it five stars is that there are a handful of black and white scenes (most near the front of the book) and I don't believe these do the scenes justice - I simply prefer colour photography for landscapes. Also the printing is not as good as other quality photographic books I have in my collection because with many scenes, you can see the individual dots that make up the print if you look closely and this kind of makes some scenes look like they were printed on canvas. Hold the book further away and that is much less of an issue. This book would have suited a slightly larger format with more "solid" ink used to print the images - the photographer's work deserves the best presentation possible!

Other than that, the book is beautifully laid out and the photographer's skill and work is outstanding and I fully recommend the book which is full of wonderful mountain scenes.

Just had this book delivered & must say what a treat it is ,evocative pictures of some of Scotland's finest hills.A sumptuous collection indeed, the author has captured the light & the play of light on the hills to stunning effect, would make a wonderful addition to any hill lovers or photographers bookshelf.
I hope that their may be more to come maybe on other areas of the UK or anywhere for that matter with quality Pictures as good as these.
