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.

Four American Gold Finches. Outdoor Nature in New Jersey.

I’ve never been able to get a picture of an American Gold Finch in my backyard. I’ve seen them, but they never stay in one place long enough to focus. Now that I have the adapter to have the new telephoto lens on a Gitzo Tripon with a Wimbly mount, I was able to get this image of four American Gold Finches. They were in the top of a tree aproximentaly 150 feet from my deck.
