A personal favorite. Low light and a long exposure, a bit tricky to pull off but very satisfying.
‘Towards the end of the week we see signs of rain coming. For the next twelve hours straight it drums hard on the tin roof. We busy ourselves with chores until they run out, then stoke up the fire. After dinner Jamie takes the pen from the hut book and, using the flickering light, makes a tiny signature on the wall. It takes a moment to see it for what it is, his small mark on the world. And in another moment I see, far above it and disappearing into the darkness, another name, another James from a century ago – Jim Muir, legend among hunters, explorers, frontier guides.
It occurs to me that the old-timer might be pleased. And then it occurs to me that our snug little hut is not so different from a cave after all.’
