Aonach Mor, 2018

Murdo MacLeod


Silhouetted winter walkers, heads bowed, ascend Aonach Mòr in the shadow of Ben Nevis, with Càrn Mòr Dearg ridge in the middle distance – and an ominous dark sky above. Murdo MacLeod visited the mountain, near Fort William, last March to photograph various winter sports, including skiing and walking. His photograph captures the physicality of the hikers’ slow trudge up the mountainside, and there is a neat geometry to the picture, too – the line of people mirrored in the slope of the ridges above. The snow is usually gone by April, but the Nevis range is home to some of Scotland’s virtually permanent “snow patches”, too. However, with global warming, even these are now coming under threat.
