About this book

This is the finest volume of Highland landscape photography ever produced – in a new, updated edition. This stunning volume contains Colin Prior's most distinctive panoramic images, from all across the Highlands, as well as thirty stunning new images and a new foreword. Scotland: The Wild Places is about landscape photography at its limits. The collection is organized around the solstices and equinoxes and dramatically illustrates the extremes of light at these turning points of the year. Each seasonal shift in the position of sunrise and sunset results in an otherworldly transformation of the landscape.

The images verge on obsession – Prior camped out on the remotest peaks in Scotland to obtain them. Shooting at the magic hours of dusk and dawn, he is able to catch those rare moments when composition, fine light and colour combine to create a remarkable image. Each photograph uniquely captures fleeting moments of nature, which will never repeat themselves exactly. As the information revolution gathers apace our lives are continuously being shaped by technology and a greater dependency on computers. In this world of virtual reality there is an even greater need for humankind to touch the natural world and experience the peace and beauty, space and silence of wild places.

Biography

Colin Prior is one of the world's leading panoramic photographers, celebrated for his images of wild places. His work has appeared in books, calendars and exhibits around the world. He is a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and a founding member of the International League of Conservation Photographers. Born in Glasgow, Scotland in 1958, his proximity to the Highlands had a powerful influence that helped shape his passion for the elements. As Bruce Stannard wrote of Colin Prior's second book Scotland: The Wild Places, "When he peers through his lens in the fleeting, ethereal light of dawn and dusk Colin sees not merely mountains and lochs and corries but the spiritual essence of the Scottish landscape".
