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.

As Promised, Snow Drops (and more Purple Crocuses).

This morning the sun was out and lighting up the flowers across the street. Snow Drops, a field of Snow Drops, Snow Drops in a field of Purple Crocuses, a field of Purple Crocuses, etc. Spring is Coming!

    Thanks, I do like what I am able to get with the Leica digital point and shoot cameras. Because of this, I just upgraded to a Leica X1. Will post images soon. I haven’t given up on my Nikon bodies and lenses, but having something light weight that gives great quality I will use.
