About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Well, I can definitely say that there was more snow in ’78 than there was when I saw and climbed this back in 2007. An obvious and significant shrinkage of the snowcap. Evidence of climate change most certainly. I love this image too – eerie, cloud wreathed and that extraordinary semi-symmetrical bulk. What a mountain!

      That’s interesting, Andy. I can remember the very small and retreating glaciers on Mt Kenya from sometime around 1978 too – maybe none of these snowcaps will last. Well, I’m a geologist – and things come and things go! Glad you like the shot – thank you. Adrian

    Stunning… and so perfect.
    Wonderful composition and tones… there’s a silent feeling in this one and I can only imagine the feeling you must have had in you…

    Enjoy your weekend, my friend. Hugs from Sweden.


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
