5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely stunning, 25 Dec 2009
This review is from: Scotland's Mountains: A Landscape Photographer's View (Hardcover)
This is a superb book. It's the best picture book on these mountains since Gordon Stainforth's classic Eyes to the Hills: Mountain Landscape of Britain (Photography).

Where Stainforth was a mountaineer who had learned to photograph well, Cornish is a photographer who has learned to mountaineer well. The effort needed to get himself and his kit to his viewpoints was considerable. The results make it worthwhile. These are the photographs that keen mountaineers would like to take, if we knew enough about photography, would stop chasing off to the next bit of the route, and slow down and use a tripod and a narrow aperture.

The photographs are superb- clear, interesting, well observed, and reflecting many aspects of the Scottish mountains. Some are straightforward views, but many are beautifully defined details that walkers like myself will have noticed briefly, and then rushed past.

This book combines two passions which many of us share- namely mountains and photography, and will inspire us to want to do more of both.

I recommend this book wholeheartedly to both photographers and mountaineers.

Thank you to my wife, Michelle, for a great Christmas present.
