Northwest photography book

NORTHWEST is a photographic book of the Highlands of Scotland, showcasing wild mountain vistas and dramatic light displays captured by International Mountain Photographer of the Year Alex Nail.

Shot over many years in all seasons and weather conditions, the book is packed full of spectacular mountain images, most of which have never been published.

Woven into the photographic story are tales of adventure and solitude in the mountains, documenting the thousands of hours Alex spent backpacking in one of the most isolated parts of the UK.

“Northwest is beautifully seen and brilliantly printed. Endeavour and commitment have produced a visual love song dedicated to a sublime landscape.”
Joe Cornish
