There's a couple of interesting things about this image depending on your point of view. If you haven't been on the Ben in winter but have climbed it in the summer - where have all the tourists gone? If you have been on it in the winter - where has all the snow gone?

On this day a place to rest before a long descent.

I make no claim to technical excellence for any these images, many were snatched in a hurry or taken on mobile phones and others scanned from old negatives or prints. They are here because they remind me of many great days in the mountains and in the hope they might tempt others to get out and spend some time in Scotland's fine wild places.
