Winter inspiration

It is that time of year I always find difficult, dark damp days with little to shift the lethargy of Autumn. But after several months working to support the launch of a new brand's winter climbing gear, inspiration has taken hold and once again I find myself studying the weather systems, searching for signs of the snow that must now come soon...
...for there is little that compares with days like these - Slioch, seen from beyond Loch Maree...
...and along the length of its northern ridge, an easy but exhilarating route to the summit...
...with vast views into a wild landscape of sinuous lochs, deep corries and massive glaciation.
