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.

Multi-Exposure View of the Waxing Gibbous Moon.

I went out last night to see about setting up a camera to do some startrails and possibly catch some Perseid meteor trails. I gave up because of the bright  waxing gibbous moon (90% illuminated) and some fast moving clouds. After midnight, it did clear up long enough to get this multi-exposure view of the moon. I set it up for 2 minutes between exposure. I think I need to go to 2.5 minutes for no overlap for a full moon.

    I thought that we only had one moon. Are the other ones Pluto?

    Just playing around to understand settings for the next time there is a lunar eclipse. Maybe I should also post the version using Nix Color Efex “Weird Lines”.
