Portrait of Glencoe, Ben Nevis and Fort William
Portrait of Glencoe, Ben Nevis and Fort William
  • Description

The Central Highlands beyond the lochan-dappled Rannoch Moor including Glencoe, Glen Etive, Glen Nevis, the Mamores, Grey Corries, and the Ben Nevis range, all fall within the Lochaber Area with Fort William being its capital. Here are to be found some of the most spectacular mountain and coastal scenery in the United Kingdom.Who can fail to be impressed by the iconic wedge-shaped Buachaille Etive Mor at the head of Glencoe, or by Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain.The area is also penetrated by deep sea lochs, which means that the sea is ever present and you catch glimpses of it from many mountain tops.

Jerry Rawson’s superb set of over 140 evocative photographs are an emotional response to this part of the Highlands throughout all the seasons. The beauty and drama of the mountains, glens and coast are brought to life in this sumptuous photographic book which reveals the many facets of this much loved part of Scotland.

Jerry’s photographs capture brooding skies, storms sweeping across the landscape and the low light at dawn and dusk illuminating the hills and glens. It is the rapidly changing weather and variable light conditions which make photographing these Scottish mountains, especially in winter, such a challenge.Apart from the familiar views, the images also show the quiet secretive corners of Glencoe, Glen Etive and Glen Nevis with their waterfalls, crags and woodlands which all contribute to make the area such a unique and wonderful place.

Jerry Rawson has spent many years walking, climbing, ski-mountaineering and photographing the Glencoe and Ben Nevis area in all its moods and although he now lives in the Peak District, he visits the Glencoe region every year and regularly produces illustrated articles about the area. His photographic work has featured in calendars, cards, advertising materials, numerous magazines and books. His recently published and critically acclaimed illustrated walking books include Discovering the Moors and Dales of the Peak District, Discover the Yorkshire Dales, Discover Snowdonia and Discover the Lake District for Halsgrove. He has produced various photographic books including Peak District Moods and Portait of Snowdonia, also for Halsgrove.

Several years ago Jerry took early retirement from lecturing at the University of Derby, Buxton, to give him more time for his passion for landscape photography, writing and outdoor activities.
