Photo Friday: High Exposure with Doug Scott

Doug Scott, one of mountaineering’s all-time greats, has gone where most humans only dream to go, reaching the summits of over 40 Himalayan peaks. Not only was he the first to ascend Everest’s South West Face, he has journeyed from Mount Kenya to the Karakoram and beyond, bringing his camera along with him to capture his perspective of the world’s most remote mountain landscapes.  

Scott’s mountain photography, which includes images of famous glaciers, was recently exhibited for the first time in black and white at the D-Contemporary Gallery in Mayfair, London. This Photo Friday, explore some of these images with GlacierHub, and view some of Scott’s other work from the exhibit here
