Wow - this has unleashed a can of whoop-ass Scottish snow photo's smileys with beer
And I suspect its going to get better - and the calander is gonna be a stonker.

Refreshing to see something positive on WH (as opposed to the usual moans n rants) thumbs up.

They are ALL stunning pictures.

Might I suggest that instead of printing just one per month, we print the winning photo large, and a few smaller ones underneath/by the side? It is quite common in calenders to see this

John Bunyan and Scott Muir's Carn Aosda photos look awesome ... I've never been on that hill (the tow up has always been closed) and can't wait to try it. Presumably that's looking east towards the road to Braemar ?

The photo looks like it undersells the gradient though and needs rotating clockwise by 5 degrees or so. i.e.
