I was away hiking in Knoydart last week, so I’ve accumulated a few more links for you than usual.

Drakensberg Nov.’18 Pt.1 – spectacular images from Alex Nail.

Restoring Spirits in Glen Feshie – Chris Townsend on the restorative powers of wild camping.

Tents for Thru-Hiking – a fantastic compendium of tents suitable for long-distance hiking from Cam Honan. Happy to contribute to this.

Taking a Sketchbook for a Walk – a great feature on walking and drawing by Liz Wakelin.

2018 Round-Up Part 1: Camps – Matthew King has had some brilliant wild camps this year.

Trees for Life to plant high-altitude forest to save rare trees and help mountain wildlife – a good-news conservation story.

Bullet Journal: One Book to Rule Them All – this is an interesting review of the ‘Bullet Journal’ system. I have been using a simplified variant of it for most of my task management for about three years now. It’s by no means perfect but it does have its benefits.

Layers of Time – a great piece by Karen Thorburn.

The Angel’s Share – I enjoyed reading this feature by David Lintern when it was originally published in TGO. He’s now reproduced it on his blog.

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
