Above is f-stop’s Henry Iddon’s shot of Ben Nevis which made the image cut. The photo is symbolic of tragic story of three young climbers who never made it back down after being snowtrapped near the summit.
The Times, Thursday, Dec 27, 1956
The bodies of three young climbers who died of exposure after being trapped 3,800ft. up on the snow covered slopes of Ben Nevis (4,406ft.) on Christmas Eve were recovered today. A fourth man, having apparently begun the descent alone, fell over a cliff and searchers saw his body, although they were unable to reach him…
Those who died were Michael Hornby; Frank Weirden; Ivor Sumnor; and Godfrey Ernest Bond.
Hornby and Bond were aged 19 and Weirden and Sumner aged 20.

A sneak peak into what makes her so special and the insane locations she’s shot at.
