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.

@marcograssiphotography What an impressive peaks and what an amazing shot! 👌🏻

Throwback week continues, haha.  This image was taken 12 years ago today, which is the best time of year to visit the famous Shi Shi and Point of the Arches if you don't mind a 4-mile slog through knee-deep mud each way.  The big surf this time of year reveals some absolutely amazing formations that have captured the imagination of photographers willing to put in the effort to get there for an overnight trip.  This was a 1-minute exposure, I believe.

The Himalaya, looking towards Makalu, the world's fifth highest peak.  This view was had from 18,000ft in altitude on the dry Tibetan side of the range, near Everest's Kangshung Face.

11 years ago I made this image.  It is still the most amazing light I ever saw on the ocean.  This cave, 100 meters long and 5 stories high, had enormous waves roaring like thunder inside, separating some of Oregon's biggest surf from the shore.  There I stood, waiting, becoming more intrigued by the moment as the sun appeared, directly out of what was the dark just minutes before illuminating the path back to the sea.  I raced in for a few shots only to barely get back in time on each occasion.  It was a experience shooting I'll never forget.

Misty morning on the Athabasca river.  Had a hard time getting this to display right on IG, but hope it looks decent now.  It was a light to remember that morning!

Edit:. Assuming you are on your phone, I can't get it to display the way I want on anything Android.  Standard display looks poor, as does vibrant for the opposite reasons.  Tried uploading 7 different versions and none worked the way I wanted.  I'll just have to hope someone has the right screen for this one.....

The tiny cave is built by nature.  The shoreline freezes then the water level drops.  Some weeks the ice in front is clear, others it lies covered with snow, as it likely does now.  December is best, maybe early January.  I liked playing around with different tiny ice pieces as foregrounds here over the course of five weeks shooting it off and on.  Lake Minnewanka, Banff.  Focus stacked, wide angle.  Hope you like it.  The ceiling is probably most interesting but hard to see at small size...

The shadows at 12,000ft looking towards Mount Fairweather, Alaska.  Hope I'll get to see this great face again sometime.  The glaciation is truly amazing.

Stuck in Jasper, Alberta today in -40F wind chills and whiteout conditions outside.  Worst weather day I have ever seen in the Rockies! 
But man, did we ever have great conditions this October in the Yukon.  It's one of the clearest and most likely places to see the aurora on Earth from up here, and the ice did not disappoint.  This was an f/2.8 + f/5.6x6 focus-stack taken same place/time while a slow-moving glow swayed back and forth above.  One of many images this year taken during our 8-day snow backpacking trip.

Got a nice clearing fog in the morning about three weeks back.  Haven't processed any other shots from this five weeks in Alberta and BC, but they are coming sometime soon.  Been an amazing year here so far, with my clients generally getting even better pics than I have to show you here :-) This was taken in about 1 minute (like almost all of my shots) hand held with two shots for shutter speed while standing in water up to my knees in -10F weather.
