UKC Top Photos App is sponsored by Berghaus, the UK's leading outdoor clothing and equipment brand and they also sponsoring the popular Photos Latest Page. Earlier in May we announced the winners in the 2011 UKC/UKH Mountain Photography Awards. We are very grateful for this generous support from Berghaus.
Angela Turley, UK Marketing Manager for Berghaus had this to say;
"As a brand Berghaus is about adventure and photos are a fantastic way to inspire people and share the amazing places we've been and things we've done.
We're proud to sponsor the UKClimbing and UKHillwalking TopPhotos app and Mountain Photography Awards to encourage people to get outdoors and capture their experiences."
The UKC and UKH Photo galleries display over 1,000 new images each month - there are almost 200,000 photos in total - taken by climbers, mountaineers and hillwalkers who are out there in the world's wild places climbing and hill walking and recording their adventures for us all to enjoy.
Registered users can then vote and comment on each photograph and each week we publish the Top 10 Climbing & Mountaineering Photos/Galleries at UKC and the Top 10 Hillwalking and Mountain Photos/Galleries at UKH. These are the photos that are downloaded on to the UKC Top Photos App each week.
The quality of the best photographs is stunning and they provide not only pleasing outdoor eye candy to help you if you are bored at work or the weather is lousy, but they also provide inspiration, motivation and ideas for places to visit.
The App has been developed by UKC User Stuart Coupe.
