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.

CSX 8519 Railroad Locomotive.

I had to stop for this CSX locomotive at two railroad crossings while driving home tonight. The second time I was in front of the queue and had the chance to quickly get the Leica I carry in the car out and get a snapshot. Converted to B&W with NIK Silver Efex Pro 2. Let me know if the image is too dark.
