Buachaille Etive Beag (The Wee Buachaille) can often be overshadowed by it’s more glamorous sister, Buachaille Etive Mor as they sit alongside each other at the head of Glencoe. Indeed from the valley the true grander of this mountain is lost but once stood atop its summit the beauty of the mountain and its position can be fully appreciated.
On this day I was working with Trail Magazine, providing some winter skills coaching to their writers as well as being the photographer for the day. We started off in thick cloud and spent some time on the lower slopes looking at ice axe and crampon skills before emerging into the sunshine and realising we had been gifted an inversion. We then rushed around like mad things as I fired off shots in all directions and got very bossy with Jenna and Jake. This is my favourite image from the day.
