One of your favourite features of the magazine, and one you've been asking us to feature as often as possible, is the Hindsight series where we talk to Joe Cornish (and other photographers) about a few of their photographs. This issue we're back with Joe and talking about a set of pictures taken in difficult light and that also happen to reflect the change in photographic medium that Joe has made over the previous decade. Firstly we have what would have  been the front cover of Scotland's Mountains, a shot taken on Fuji Provia with Joe's Ebony large format camera. Second up is a panoramic stitch of the Hole of Horcum in winter taken on the Phase P45 back and featured in tableau, ultra large size at the joint exhibition "Landscape Revisited" with Kane Cunningham at the Scarborough Art Gallery. Finally we have a photograph taken last month during a scouting expedition that Joe and I made in Wester Ross and using the IQ180 digital back. We hope you enjoy the range of pictures and discussion and please ask any questions or add your own comments at the bottom.

If you want to take a look around the image from Wester Ross, Joe has kindly allowed us to include a 'zoomify' version which you can access by clicking 'this link'.
