Reviews of A Year In The Life Of The Cairngorms

Cairn Gorm in full winter raiment

My photo book on the Cairngorms has been out for nearly half a year now and I've delighted to have received many positive comments about it. Most recently reader David Byers emailed me to say he'd reviewed it on Amazon. Reading his review I was flattered and pleased to be mentioned in the same breath as Nan Shepherd's wonderful book on the Cairngorms The Living Mountain. There are three other reviews on Amazon, all of them giving the book five stars. Thank you everybody. Receiving such reviews really makes all the time spent sitting at the computer writing and editing photographs worthwhile.

Here in the Cairngorms the snow has been melting fast the last week and only patches are left. However there was a little new snow today and the weather has turned much colder. Outside it is freezing. The strong winds that have been blowing most of the winter so far have dropped too and the next few days look like they may be calm and clear. Time to visit the high tops again I think. I'll let you know how I get on.
