Superb Photos This Week

© Sean Murphy
The UKC Photo galleries are looking top-notch this week with a spread of photographs from bouldering to winter climbing.

We have over 80,000 photos in the UKC databases, with around 400 new photos added each week. Galleries are on show from professional photographers such as Alastair Lee and Chris JD, as well as professional standard galleries from expert photographers such as Wee Jamie and Ramon Marin Martinez.

Enough words, lets look at some pictures!

Thanks to all the UKC photo contributors. When it's raining outside, or when you are chained to the office desk, the UKC photo galleries can offer a ticket to the mountains. Just don't let your boss catch you... Now get back to work!

Agreed, some fantastic pics. Just wondering, you say above that you have over 115,000 pics on the databases but on the photos main page it say "There are over 80,600 photographs on UKClimbing". Of course they could mean the same thing, but why the discrepancy in numbers? Are there some 34,400 photos not submitted by anyone in particular, or advertisers, or hidden?

Nope, I made a mistake with the 115000 and Nick corrected me. I will now correct this thread. Thanks!! Jack

I really like this one, I know it is the same old angle on NTBTA, but I love the shadow of the climber on the rock:
