Capturing The Cruel Beauty of Winter in The Scottish Highlands with a Hasselblad

Lucky enough to grow up with the Scottish Highlands on his doorstep, Ruairidh McGlynn has always been drawn to otherworldly landscapes – and for him, the harsher the environment, the better.

Seeking out the winter storms of the Highlands, he ventured into rain, sleet and snow in weather as cold as -15°C with his Hasselblad cameras: X1D and XCD 45. Usually drawn to locations that are less documented, Ruairidh was instead intrigued to capture the cruel beauty of the area’s intense conditions, seeing the Highlands from a fresh, snowy perspective.

Ruairidh McGlynn’s impressive images can be shared with your readers by directing them to the Hasselblad official website.
