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

Lambertville Station Inn with the Delaware River at Near Flood Stage, Post Hurricane Irene.

I took these images of the Lambertville Station Inn with the waters from the Delaware River up to the level of the parking lot. The Lambertville Station Inn is right next to the Lambertville  — New Hope bridge,  which I cross on my way to work in Pennsylvania. This bridge remained open. These images were taken just after the river peaked at about 12 feet above normal. The offical NWS flood stage is 13 feet. The USGS has a web site where you can see a graph of the river level at this location.

    The first one totally looks like a postcard from 1907.

      Except for the car on the far left which I almost “content aware” edited out with Photoshop. I don’t know if there was a flood in 1907, but the Rail Road Station and Inn probably did exist then.

      btw — the sky is perfectly clear tonight after the hurricane, and will probably be out trying to do some more startrails.
