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.

Elderhostel “Photography in the Southwest” Workshop Day 3. Sand Island Petroglyphs

The Elderhostel “Photography in the Southwest” workshop was based at Kelly Place B&B  just outside of Cortez Colorado. This is a great location in McElmo Canyon, quiet and remote. It borders Canyon of the Acients National Monument. The following images of Petroglyphs and modern graffiti were taken at the Sand Island Petroglyphs Bureau of Land Managment (BLM) site in Utah.
