We're taking a little detour in our Hindsight series with a video covering two complementary images from Joe's Scotland's Mountains book - one you've seen before and one not. The first is a photo from Glen Orchy taken under very difficult conditions, bright blue skies in the mid-summer with 'cooked' green trees. The second is one from the book and a photograph that made Joe realise the possibilities of shooting vistas in inclement conditions. We hope you enjoy.

We're still settling on the different bandwidths of video available and are hoping to offer the ability to 'skip' into the middle of videos at some point. For now we've got a high bandwidth 720HD version, a medium resolution version for limited bandwidth and ipads and finally a small version for low bandwidth and iphone. Let us know if these are working OK for their intended purposes or if you are having problems.

We suggest downloading the high resolution version overnight as it's about 1Gb - just right click on the link (or ctrl click) and 'save as'. The medium resolution version is probably the best option to play on most computers and can be downloaded also.
