We have finished work on the sixth printed volume of Sidetracked, the adventure-travel magazine, and it’s now available for pre-order. I think it’s one of the best we’ve produced yet.

In the unknown we find the essence of fear. In the darkness of what we can’t see or understand, we discover what it’s like to be afraid. It’s human nature, an in-built survival mechanism, to be cautious when we have no idea what lies ahead. Venturing into the unknown requires considerable courage.

Volume Six includes stories by Kilian Jornet (who was in Nepal when the earthquake struck), Andy Houseman and Jon Griffiths (writing about their attempt to make the first ascent of Link Sar), Tara Mulvany (dodging polar bears on a sea-kayak circumnavigation of Svalbard), and James Hollmer-Cross (surfing the monster waves of Pedra Branca). There’s loads more material to enjoy here too, and the stories are accompanied by some truly stunning photography.

I’ve now been Sub-Editor on the Sidetracked team for a year, and working on Volume Six has been a real pleasure. It ships on the 9th of February and you can pre-order your copy here.

What survives in the record: a Glen Coe hill day from 15 years ago today

Every now and again, I dip into my Lightroom library and journals, curious to see what I was doing 10, 15, or 20 years ago on this day. On the 6th of April, 2009, my brother James had just arrived in Glen Coe and was keen to experience these mountains

Some phone pictures from a sunny hill weekend (and a few thoughts on photo note-taking)

And now for something completely different. If you want to understand my approach to photos as a working outdoor writer then 35mm film (which I gush about on this blog all the time) is only a third of the story. Another third is my full-frame digital camera – no surprises there.

Maybe the web used to be better than it is now

I am spending less time on Instagram and more time in the old-fashioned blogosphere (via my RSS reader) once again, because I increasingly dislike what Instagram does to my brain. And I increasingly wonder if the internet was actually better and more diverse when more of us posted updates regularly
