When I walk the mountains I evaluate their aesthetic value. For me it started with the Lake District. Then Snowdonia, Scotland, and the Peak District alongside; the Alps one year, Pyrenees for seven years, and then Corsica in 2015. They’re different.

Corsica is not notably photogenic. There are good moments, which is usually the case amongst big mountains, but not a consistent photographic journey where I reach for my camera every thirty minutes.

The fact that it’s a big mountain range is not the point, photographically speaking. I found the panorama format was most successful. The spread across the horizon, as opposed to to a peak or assembly of rock, is not the photography I aim for. In Corsica however, more than other places, I took a large number of shots such as this.
