I discovered this blog fairly recently, after a certain article of stunning Scottish mountain photos was sent to me by a Twitter follower. Self powered doesn’t focus exclusively on any single theme, although most of the articles look at the subjects of mountaineering, Scotland, and the environment.What sets self powered apart from other blogs, in my opinion, is the incredible standard of photography, coupled with sparse and powerful writing.

He only tends to post a few times a month but the articles tend to be good!Some particularly excellent posts:Nothing Ventured…Big Mountain Days on Culra’s Sleeping GiantsAn Alpine EasterAutumn Hobo, 2 wheeled pilgrim
