A cover design for The Farthest Shore

In my most recent Pinnacle newsletter, I wrote a little about the thinking process that went into creating the cover for The Farthest Shore, my upcoming book about looking for solitude on the Cape Wrath Trail in winter. That process has now come to its conclusion after a further round of design tweaks, and I couldn’t be more pleased to share the final design with you here.

The book, which is being published by the hard-working team at Vertebrate Publishing, will be out in September this year. The best way to be alerted of pre-orders or any special deals will be to sign up to receive my newsletter, but I’ll also be spreading the news far and wide over my blog and social channels, of course! I consider this book some of my finest work from recent years, so I can’t wait to share it with the world.

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
