Superb photography. In some cases the images would have been better without the climbers

Ok now please don't get me wrong, as these are stunning images, but they are all in perfect light and conditions where all you really need to do is be there with a camera.
The sort of mountain shots that really grab me are the ones where the light and situation are sometimes difficult or even terrible but the photographer really manages to capture the atmosphere (Gordon Stainforth Cuillin type pics).

Hmmm, not that easy for quite a few of those!

'..they are all in perfect light and conditions where all you really need to do is be there with a camera.'

That's about 80% of climbing photography - a lot of what people would consider 'good' shots aren't good because the photographer is technically brilliant (not knocking Jon btw he's prob also technically brilliant!) - they're good because the photographer did the work to get them-self into a position, at a certain time, that they know will best show off a route's qualities. Modern dslr's and post-processing do much of the hard technical work.

In reply to UKC Articles: Hi Jon.

Lovely selection of Images, you are truly one of the greatest chroniclers of the modern Alpine scene. It never fails to cross my mind that simply getting yourself into the locations are monumental efforts in themselves.

keep it up and i can't wait for part 2

Getting there and doing it and then chronicling it so well - such a great achievement. Wonderful images.

In reply to subalpine: To be fair, its not. Its largely about having the talent to see and compose the shot and understanding how to use your camera to get the shot you want. If it was just about being in the right place at the right time, then UKC would be awash with images of this quality.

Awesome photos.

I like the fact that he has got several of the climbers to wear his same chosen top/helmet combo in green and orange even though they are all different people! :) (presumably they didn't all choose the same outfit by chance...)
