In the early days of 2012, reeling from a health scare and redundancy, a 35-year-old Midlands backpacker with a love of cinema, wild places and Lakeland pitched his tent on Scafell Pike and set up a budget camcorder.

It was the start of a journey that has seen Terry Abraham battle blizzards, near-death falls, bitter cold and intense loneliness to make a trilogy of films that have been seen by millions and become the benchmark of Lake District cinematography.

In Life on the Mountains Terry presents more than 100 exclusive photos from a decade on the fells, and speaks candidly about his troubled early life, a disowned father, depression and his love of real ale before revealing the tricks and techniques of his craft and detailing the landscapes he’s grown to love.

From wild nights on Harter Fell to meeting Cumbrian legends; from stalking deer in Martindale to documenting Storm Desmond’s fallout; from dawn shoots of golden-hour panoramas to becoming a campaigning voice for Lakeland, Life on the Mountains is the story of one man’s mission to capture the Lake District as never before – and of finding peace in the fells.

 “....graced by exquisite photography, much of it helped by Terry’s fondness for wild camping. There are captured landscapes in these films and book that I’ve never seen. This book is a stunning contribution to Lakeland literature.”

Stuart Maconie

 “Lakes poets don’t always come in frock coats from Cockermouth and Hawkshead. Sometimes they come from the East Midlands, wear hiking sandals and drink beer....make no mistake about it; Terry IS a Lakes poet - just working with light and cloud and grass and water rather than stanzas and couplets.”
