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. Images I post on Google+ are also forwarded to this Photo blog. I am a retired chemist that worked nearly thirty years in the Pharmaceutical industry. I took my first DSLR camera on a road trip across the United States, and became hooked, with my new passion becoming a photographer. I now spend all my time traveling and taking pictures. Since then I have visited over 50 countries, many on Semester at Sea voyages. My photographic interests include travel, the natural world, landscapes, and photographic techniques. I always want to learn something new and the only way to become better is to learn from mistakes.

Mesa Verde National Park. Elderhostel “Photography in the Southwest” Day 0.

While traveling from Boulder Colorado to Kelly Place just outside of Cortez Colorado to meet up with my father (Loren) and brother (Erik) to attend the Elderhostel “Photography in the Southwest” workshop, I stopped at Mesa Verde National Park. I knew that we would be back here during the workshop. The following four images were taken during an afternoon visit.
