    Hi

    Does anyone have recommendations for photographs of the above? I'm looking for a present for a work colleague who is leaving and his wife tells me he likes prints of Scottish mountains. The rougher the better. I'm not sure where to look. I'm wanting to buy maybe a print and a book

    Thanks for any advice

    Try PMing Helander - he's bound to know (or be able to flog you some).

    I'm surprised at you needing to ask Willie!

    I'd probably go with wild places as my favourite book of his and one of Cuillen shots is easily my favourite picture on my walls....sunrise over a mist covered Loch Cuirusk is stunning. Scotland doesn't get much rougher than that wee bit of Skye.

    Thanks for the links, and suggestions, folks.

    I am looking into all options at the moment and all recommendations are gratefully received.

    I'd also suggest contacting forum user Helander. I'd value some of his photos as prints more than most well known landscapers. :)

    If landscapes with mountains is of interest, also try Bruce Percy, although he currently doesn't have many Scottish prints listed for sale.

    Hi Willie, just seen this.
    Thanks guys.

    Two great shouts from Kate.

    Have a look at John Parminter's '50 Finest Mountains'
    Reeks of Scotland and his pictures are stunning and inspirational. Haven't seen the book myself but I'm told it's a bit special.

    If your budget can stretch Ian Lawson's 'From the land comes the Cloth' is incredible. It's a huge book, 3 years in the making, all pictures Harris and Lewis based. I've fingered this book and it's stunning but may not be as mountain based as much as you need.

    Is there anyone other than Colin Prior doing shots from difficult to get to locations in difficult to get conditions?

    Can't say I'm all that impressed by shots from easy locations and/or typical conditions.

    Thanks once more folks. It's all much appreciated. I'm on quite a tight timescale, I'm afraid as far as the prints are concerned and I'm after them framed so probably needs to be an online shop for them. The books look great and I am pursuing your recommendations today. Thanks again :)
