Scotland's Fifty Finest Mountains is a detailed photographic exploration into some of the most stunning views of Scottish mountains.
John Parminter has been a landscape photographer for a relatively short time, yet his images speak of years of experience in the hills. Since he was young he has felt an affirmation with mountains, fells and hills, and this exploration brings his love of Scottish mountains into photos.
The book sets out to showcase the very finest mountains that Scotland has to offer, and it doesn't disappoint. The book is split into different geographical sections of Scotland: Southern Highlands, Central Highlands, Western Highlands, Northern Highlands, Eastern Highlands and the Islands.
Each section begins with a map, and a brief description of that area. On the map are pinpointed all the mountains in the area that are photographed, along with pages where photos of each mountain listed can be found.
Each double page spread is dedicated to a different mountain. John gives us a short description for each one of what ideas he had for the photo, how he went about achieving it and some facts and figures about each mountain. This accompanied by his awe inspiring photos makes for a great read and makes you appreciate the natural beauty that Scotland has.
At the back of the book there is a list of exposure details for each of the photos taken, meaning this book covers every avenue you could possibly think of in terms of information, engaging narrative and of course loads of visually stunning photos that make you want to be right there on the mountains themselves.
John has a little story for each of the mountains he photographed, making the book a diary of sorts about his explorations, as well as a reference for what are without some of the finest mountains in Scotland today.
