David Mathre Photography

Welcome to my Images of the Day Photo blog. My goal is to post images from each day of the year going back to 2006 when I got my first DSLR camera. My photographic interest include Travel, the Natural World, Landscapes, and Photographic Techniques. I try to include information for each image as to where, when, why and how the image was processed. Most of the images are available for purchase -- either as prints or rights managed (Clicking on an image brings you to the ShepArt Studio Team Site). Comments about the images or this site are always welcome. DJM

I am still downloading images

This is where (and how many) pictures I took over the last 4 months (including 102 days on the Spring 2016 Semester at Sea Voyage). 

I am back home after 120 days, 48+K miles, 14 countries, and 285+K images

It is going to take some time to download and process the images.

Semester at Sea Spring 2016 Voyage: Day -1

Sea Gull and the Semester at Sea MV World Odyssey. Gone to See the World 2016.  San Diego, California. Nikon 1 V3 camera and 10-30 mm VR lens (ISO 200, 24 mm, f/10, 1/125 sec). Image Processed with Capture One Pro, Focus Magic, and Photoshop CC.

This morning I went for a walk along the San Diego Harbor to see the MV World Odyssey. This is the new ship that Semester at Sea is using for its voyages, and will be my home for the next 3 1/2 months. Even though the ship is docked in San Diego, we have to take a bus ride to Ensenada, Mexico before we can board the ship. The Spring Semester Voyage starts tomorrow night. The first port will be Honolulu, Hawaii.
