The photos

The copyrighted photos are 'courtesyware' - as our site is strictly non-commercial, the only charge made for using them is courtesy - please credit this site with a link and drop us an email, as we would be interested. For printed projects we can also send you the original higher quality image.

Maps

For trips going back to February 2008, the route maps are displayed via the OS OpenSpace facility which will show a 1:50,000 OS map with the route overlaid. For older trips an outline sketch map will show the approximate line of the routes, and any detail shown is limited to features we could see (or infer) from walks we have done in those areas. In all cases the actual map numbers required for the walk are specified.

We almost always print map sheets for our backpacks from Memory Map Navigator which greatly reduces the weight and bulk compared to the commercial preprinted maps. For those that use the preprinted maps, note that since the OS revamped their map structure and reissued everything, the new ones may give extended coverage and reduce the number of maps required. Note that some Explorer maps have been renumbered too.

Notes on the photography.

Cameras

None of the photos have been enhanced for 'artistic' effect, the only alterations made were to overcome the limitations of the technology. Most notable here was the tendency of the Ixus 330 to render foreground objects too dark in some conditions, and to make the landscapes slightly pale and washed out, making software compensation unavoidable. The aim is always to show an accurate visual record.
