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



Sunset Panorama of Yosemite Valley from Tunnel View.

Nikonians ANPAT 8 — End of Day 1. There were a large number of photographers (in addition to the Nikonians group) lined up at the Tunnel View parking lot to photograph sunset. Many left thinking nothing was going to happen, then all of a sudden sunlight came in from under the clouds from the west to light up both sides of the valley with this incredible orange color. I think that the mist down in the valley is actually smoke from campers cooking dinner.
