/ Scottish winter climbing video preview
This is just a small sample section of my last winter trip to scotland. Part of a much bigger film to feature trad, french alps and downhill mountain biking.
If anything, i just hope it just reminds you all of lucky we are to live in one of the most amazing places on earth!
Any feedback would be great

Reminded me of sooooo many wonderful winter days.
Nice one. You really captured some great footage and some beautiful images of the mounatins. As already mentioned, I also would get rid of 90% of the slow- mo walk in bits but otherwise it's a really nice wee vid. No other criticisms though!
I've done some vids too (see my profile). Would appreciate some feedback on mine as well.
I liked it. It felt like the promise of winter to come; a taster.
I liked the fact that you didn't show any faces, this making it easier for the viewer (voyeur?) to feel like they are in the movie.
If makes me look forward to 3am starts and 5 hour walkins. Can't wait; estivation is almost over.
Crackin vid lad
It's good but a bit too much looking at your feet which I presume is due to where the camera was.
The landscape shots were brilliant, and I actually liked the footage of the slow-mo trudge on the approach - it rang true!
But I'm afraid I find helmet-cam footage to be pretty generic and that it doesn't really tell me much about the nature of the climb.
> It's good but a bit too much looking at your feet which I presume is due to where the camera was.
I'm in agreement, but with a bit more footage and editing it would be really great. The time lapse opening shots are brilliant and it's got me all excited about winter. Good work!
Yes. Some nice shots. But need to Edit, edit, edit. And throw in some other points of view. Best way to learn is to look at some pro stuff and compare shots, lengths, flow etc. If you want to make pro stuff gotta think like a pro. And of the audiance. But then if it's just for you and your mates, then who cares :)
I agree. Heard it was shortlisted for Sundance!
What's the view please at 0:37m?
I'm sure I'll kick myself when I find out.
If its just given you all an appetite for this coming winter then I'm happy with that!
There's a wee scrappy bit of ground that might pass for a layby beside one of the S-bends a couple of thousand metres east of the battle site in Glen Shiel. Stop the car there, move 20m over to the river and you get a view just like that. I must have taken half a dozen of these with most of the cameras I have owned. Used to always get Runrig's Going Home playing at this point. #In the distance, day was dawning ...#
Creag nan Damh up on the left and its smaller friend Sgurr a'Chuilinn centre stage followed by Faochag and then Sgurr an Forcan with the well-known ridge facing the camera and the Sgurr na Creige ridge out to the right of it.
I particularly like the moving landscape bits
