The North face of Ben Nevis from Carn Mor Dearg, shortly before sunset.

For a long time I’ve been wanting a sunrise shot of the North face of Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest mountain. This means camping on the nearby peak of Carn Mor Dearg. Shortly after arriving at the peak, a temperature inversion developed, cloaking the slopes of Ben Nevis with a misty veil of cloud.
It was a truly sublime end to the day and I shot numerous versions of this view along the ridge towards the summit (including a colour panoramic version, available direct at www.bananapancake.com.)
After a spectacular night under a clear and starry sky, I woke to a typically damp, grey and misty Scottish morning. I guess the sunrise shot will have to wait for another year!
