Alpenglow

The banner photo above was taken when descending from Ben Cruachan after a day’s winter climbing. For a few moments we stood transfixed as the alpenglow turned our world a deep, vivid pink. As the weak February sun sank lower the colour faded away as suddenly as it had appeared.
Among the purple shadows and glinting ice crystals lies something truly ethereal – the essence of the time and place in which the photo was taken. My intention for this blog is to capture such transience using the written word; to save and to share experiences that may otherwise trickle away unnoticed.
