The Beckoning Silence by AndyMumford The Beckoning Silence by AndyMumford
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.

Cheers mate. Shots like this need to be printed really, or seen very large. They just don't work on the internet I reckon
