After more than 20 years at the top of his craft, Colin has developed an almost uncanny ability to pre-visualise a photograph well before he trips the shutter ... This is a rare and beautiful record, a work of art, a magic portal through which we enter a higher spiritual plane. (Scots Magazine)
Prior's pictures spill majestically across two-page spreads, capturing vast expanses, distortion-free and with crystal clarity. (Laszlo Buhasz, The Scotsman)

This, the second of two books that I have bought of Colin Prior's Scottish photography, easily leads the field in my opinion and wonderfully achieves both of the targets that I had in mind. The photography that is beyond my grasp is represented by all the wonderful views taken from rather inaccessible places and which must have required a physical effort almost beyond belief. How many times had he struggled to the appropriate vantage point, I wondered, only to find that conditions were no longer aesthetically suitable? True dedication to his craft. He also makes use of fine panoramic camera equipment that I cannot afford! The other, more accessible variety of images in the book and which even I might reach, are all equally fine and show Scotland at its magical best and most inspiring. No more need be said except, be amazed. Then be inspired to go off and try to do something similar for yourself for ultimate personal benefit.
So Colin Prior clearly sets a new benchmark with this book. The previous winner in my opinion was 'Scotland The Wild Places' published in 2001 and, not surprisingly, also by Colin Prior. I am full of admiration. Buy both and you will be poorer financially but richer in all the life-enhancing ways that matter long term!
Highly recommended and an easy 5 stars.
Totally amazing and a must have for all landscape photographers and hikers with an interest in Scottish mountains. Superb.
