The Cairngorms contain the greatest area of land over 4,000 feet above sea level, the largest Caledonian pine forests and the biggest national park in Britain. This spectacular land of mountains, lochs, rivers and woods is wild and beautiful. The mountains form a series of vast sub-arctic plateaux ringed by big granite cliffs, deep lake-filled corries and long glens. High rocky passes cut through the mountains while pine and birch forests cover their lower slopes. For much of the year the mountains are snow-covered, a white wilderness that can be harsh and savage but also dramatic and awe-inspiring. For the photographer the severe weather and rugged terrain are challenging but also very rewarding. Photographer and author Chris Townsend has lived in the Cairngorms for 20 years and photographed them in all seasons, walking over the summits in summer, skiing over them in winter and camping out at all times of the year. The results are shown in this collection of evocative and impressive images.
