Will Copestake Statement

Moments in the Mist

Celebrating those rare and magical moments when the veil lists over the mountains. A collection of photographs from Will Copestake’s winter expeditions across the Scottish mountains. This winter Will has returned to the mountains in an attempt to tackle all 222 Corbett mountains [those between 2500-3000ft]. These images are the moments, minutes and seconds of glory sky between otherwise ‘harsh’ days, the flashes of a view that make the journey worthwhile.
