Where to take photos of mountains
In the UK, head to the Lake District in England, Snowdonia in Wales, and to the Grampian Mountains and the Cairngorms in the Scottish Highlands.
In Europe, the Alps are one of the largest and highest mountain ranges in the world, and stretch across France, Italy, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Germany, Austria and Slovenia, while the dramatic Pyrenees separate France and Spain.
