Prints are mounted using Daler Mountboard with a protective backing of greyboard. The 3 colours shown above are fairly neutral to match most decors, but I do have other colours available. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.

The dramatic north-east corries of Foinaven, divided by the buttressed ridge of A Ch’eir Ghorm, are rarely visited. They lie hidden above the long cleft of Strath Dionard and face the steep white screes of Cranstackie and Conamheall, across whose gritty shoulder the two climbers are making their way in this painting. At just under 3000 feet, Foinaven misses out on Munro status, and so its narrow quartzite ridges remain peaceful, whether the mountain is bathed in sunshine or wreathed in mist. To climb up into the clouds on such unfrequented slopes can be scary, but it brings exciting glimpses of vapour-veiled crags backed by distant lochans, softly framed in luminous mist. But the greatest reward, perhaps, is the confidence gained by one’s ability to navigate in such conditions, and to overcome the fear of the unknown, which assails us whenever our senses are compromised. It really can be a case of walking by faith, not by sight.
