Another view of "the most photographed mountain in Scotland".
I shot it from various angles using a wide angle lens and the river Etive as foreground interest, but wide angle shots push the detail and scale of the mountain away.
So this is a telephoto shot of the Stob Dearg peak of Buachaille Etive Mor in the Scottish Highlands, where I was trying to make the whole scene more abstract and a study of the detail of the ice, snow and rock.
Title taken from Joe Simpson's brilliant book on mountaineering.
