It was an absolutely amazing moment I will never forget.  My buddy yelling tornado!! and me turning around quickly from the spindrift I was shooting to confront the only snow whirlwind I have ever shot.  It was definitely the rarest photograph of my entire career.  Shot on Divide Mountain in Montana.  Winds that morning gusted to hurricane force and the whirlwind (not a real tornado) is caused by airflow bending around the mountain wall at competing angles. Hope you enjoy.

@sapnareddy My fave in your collection ❤️

A classic of a composition from coast mountains in British Columbia this summer.  Figured it would be a nice thing to share in mid-January.  I could never tire of these amazing gardens holding onto the otherwise glacial landscape here.

This night we were lucky to see what must have been the best show of moonlight I can remember.  Clouds cleared away, and a little aurora showed up too, emphasized by the ultrawide vertical stitched perspective.  The face is 1000 meters tall, and crunched a little but for the 4x5 IG format here.  The foreground was all I could come up with....quite a bit of focus stacking at the bottom of the stitch.

It was a memorable morning in the mountains at about 7500ft altitude in the Northwest Territories of Canada.  Turquoise glacial lakes, 1000-meter cliffs and some epic light at this moment, as the storm cleared away! *Looks better on my website*.....

Patagonia.  Surely one of the most sought after photo locations on Earth.  The mountains here may be second to none, but the Lenga and Coigue forests here contain some amazing beauty of their own.  I run a very special kind of tour here where we employ elite mountain guides from both countries, multiple different boats, ice boats, and have our own personal vehicles at all times on land.  It's a non-stop light chase spanning 20 days and much of it dedicated to off-trail routes in places so deep in the wilderness they have rarely been photographed.  Last year we were the first known group of photographers into some of the ice-choked 2500-meter deep fiords we visited in North Patagonia, during 10 days at sea and many hours in ice boats with full backpacking supplies.  Needless to say it's a big adventure, and physically demanding at times.  I mention this because just this week spots came open for this trip, after being full for over a year.  You can contact me at marc@marcadamus.com if interested, April 8-27, 2019, $12995 per person.  Only about 5% of my trips have openings like this announced online, so consider it one of my best trip opportunities!  You can also contact me via my website to sign up for my trip announcement list and more. 
Now, back to the image.  This is NOT exactly the wilderness here but it overlooks Lago Grey, which we cross on boat and proceed with backpacking packs to the west later in our journey.  The shot here is actually right near the hotel, at a tree I have been trying to shoot with the perfect sky and floors for about 5 years now, and this was the evening it finally happened.  Hope you enjoy.  You can scroll down my page here for pics of the Patagonian wilderness too.

Big peaks and lots of September snow and ice.  That's what we found while exploring the Mackenzie mountains of the NWT, Canada this year, via a couple different trips.  We had three strait nights of moonlit camping and aurora on this outing, so here's another shot from a different location in the range.  1000 meter high towers catch the shadows which show off the peaks behind me and in front.  I liked the effect of the moonlight, even if it did feel a bit strong for a night image.  Many of the exposures I made did look like mid-day though, focus stacked at f/5.6, 30 seconds, 3200iso for the foreground and much less for the aurora overhead.  Additional shots were used for focus on the small icicles.  Thanks for any comments.

The view from this camp in the coastal ranges of BC is just second to none for me all year.  Grabbed this one just after cooking some dinner for the group.  What a show it was, and thanks to a lot of luminosity in the scene I was easily able to control the sun.  All one 14mm shot.  Looking away from the big peaks here, but nevertheless the water and distant icefalls and rivers really made it work for my taste.  Thanks for your thoughts.

A heli pilot friend of mine in Juneau calls this his favorite place in AK, Jurrasic Park it was named, for a jungle of waterfalls down further in the rainforest canyon below.  This is the Jurassic alpine then, and ever since I first laid eyes on it I've wanted to spend more time here.  The range of wilderfowers here might just be better than anywhere I will ever been, and the waterfalls, ice caves, high peaks and alpine park country complete the rest of this summer paradise.  Hope you enjoy.

Sometimes the most amazing moments are the most fleeting.  In photography, as in life, our most precious moments often go by so fast we haven't yet realized what they are, and what they have given us before they are gone.  Through photos, we can visit the past, but in life we can not.  So this holiday season, let's try to live and appreciate every day for what it is, a beautiful world of possibilities.  I'm with family in Sunriver Oregon now, looking at that white stuff falling outside.  This photo was taken in the Yukon, on a morning I will never forget.
