An Teallach

Hasselblad XPan 30mm. July 2017.

Standing at the foot of An Teallach in the pre-dawn light I knew from experience that the low-lying cloud above me was indicative of a potential cloud inversion surrounding the mountain. With the thought of what might lay above I pushed on hard hoping to capture this rare phenomenon before it burned off. In a little over ninety minutes I had reached the summit. I was in luck, above the cloud it was warm and windless, the silence absolute. I immediately set up my camera to capture the stunning conditions, I made my exposures and only after that could I finally relax. I sat down to recover, taking it all in. Two hours later I was still there, it was almost impossible to leave but as the sun gained height the sea of cloud gradually dissipated and I returned home sunburnt and happy.
