The winter that has just ended has been very difficult for me on a personal level (more on that in a coming post). That aside, it has been a spectacular few months in the Highlands and in terms of photography it has been my most successful winter of the past decade. I spent many weeks guiding back-to-back photography workshops and was largely blessed with cold, snowy conditions both on the hills and in the glens.
When I wasn’t guiding I managed to sneak in some of the best winter days on the mountains I’ve ever had. The North West Highlands featured heavily in my winter, and for weeks the hills there were in the best condition I’ve seen for 5 years.
Here’s some of my favourite images from winter 2017/18. I have to pinch myself when I say many of these were taken whilst working, and I’m certainly counting my blessings.
