New Zealand.  An extreme challenge to photograph these forests but with some real light beams coming through the warm coastal mist this morning I was able to cobble together something I thought captured this moment in the wilderness pretty well from one of our backcountry camps on the far Southwest coast of the South Island.

Clouds pour over the high glacial ridgelines of Mount Aspiring, New Zealand.  It was an amazing sight I will never forget.

@felixinden Nowadays 90% of my Instagram time is spent in your profile. I see a new upload and don’t need to see more images for the rest of the day πŸ˜€ stellar work, powerful

@felixinden @marcadamus better for my mental sanity to not see too much of your stuff. Always a tease of course. Enjoy your time out

The stormy side of New Zealand.  This was the worst rainstorm in a generation in some areas, wiping out roads and tracks throughout the South Island.  Fortunately though, I was there to capture some of the action and have some interesting close-ups coming as well as the big landscape, showing off those 1000-meter high cascades in the rainforest environment.......................NEXT UP.............
Also coming this week (tomorrow, to be precise) is one of my biggest tour announcements of the year.  Come see why over 6000 people have joined my tours mailing list and get on one of the most informative and productive photography trips you could ever do!  The announcements go out to those who have contacted me at marc@marcadamus.com and all trips for the last ten years have filled up shortly after announcements were made.  Trips are announced 8-24 months out.  Creating unique experiences for people in the field is my passion and my life's work.  I would love to see you out there one day.

@maxrivephotography Definitely a favorite for me...

@sapnareddy That’s so cool πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜Š

New Zealand is amazing (like you didn't already know that). Here's one from a recent backpacking trip.  I wanted to showcase in this image what love so much about the place, that amazing combination of deep jungle and high mountains.  The waterfalls and glacial blue rivers are everywhere.  Hope you enjoy.

How about some more New Zealand today, guys.  Just got back from a trip where I helicoptered and boated my small group of dedicated shooters into many of the most awesome places on the South Island that most will never see over the course of 9 days, and then afterwards shot the biggest rainstorm in a decade there.  I didn't expect to be posting to IG anytime soon, but after some other travel plans fell through I unexpectedly had some time to process a few, and let me tell you, that was pretty easy when you have a scene like this! 
I wanted to pay a little tribute here to the Kiwi legend, Andris Apse, the man who's images first brought the South Island to life in the eyes of many around the world.  Also a shout out to my good buddy and absolutely amazing photographer @williampatino_photography for hanging with us for a couple days.  I asked Will if he would join me in scouting the Island some years ago, and I have never met a more genuine, hard working and talented guy out there.

Find out about these trips only on my mailing list by emailing me at marc@marcadamus.com

New Zealand is a land of peace.  My Muslim friends, brothers and sisters, I stand in solidarity with you.  Your pain is felt in my heart, and your grief is shared with the wonderful people of New Zealand who had their dreams of paradise shattered by this hate.  Today is a day of mourning, but it is also an opportunity to rally our communities, our children, our nation's against this hate that threatens us.  Without the understanding of our fellow man, we can accomplish nothing together for this Earth, or ourselves.

It was as if a cold ocean of wind swallowed these tiny trees, clinging to each other, but through the tempest they endured.  800mm shot, Convict Peak, single exposure.

Getting up early in the valley below, a hike above the clouds seemed very possible this morning from a meteorological standpoint so I went for it.  It turned out to be a sunrise I'd never forget.  The small group of photographers I had with me on this special morning got quite a treat, as we shot these epic skies over fields of color from the Tatoosh Range. 2014

Some pretty aurora.  No other light in this one, but with that early season ice I couldn't resist.  Yukon, 2018.

The mountain here has no name.  The same is true for the glaciers and stream below and almost every other geographial feature for miles.  Unnamed though it is, this stunning location was my frigid camp for 11 days in 2014 when I spent almost a month trying to helicopter in and out of this region, one of the most remote in all of Canada's mountains.  Behind me in the distance was the great Mt Chutine, which I had come to see, but one morning before that cleared off this high ridge behind me broke through the clouds in water was a truly memorable sunrise, at 930am in November.  This range averages 3 meters of snow PER MONTH at time of year, so I had to make the most of what I got!  Thanks for looking.
