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.



Time-Lapsed Video of a Hike down Park Avenue in Arches National Park.

Three years ago today, I was attending a Nikonians Academy Photography Workshop in Moab Utah led by Winston Hall. Winston talked me into carrying a tripod on my shoulders so the DSLR camera would be above my head. We set the camera up with a fisheye lens and had it take images every 15 seconds. I used the ~900 images to make a time-lapsed video of the hike we took on the Park Avenue trail in Arches National Park.

If you are not able to view the time-lapsed video from here, it is also available in the Shepartphotography Gallery

Thanks to Jim Batey, I’ve added an image he took of me wearing the Tripod Headcam.

    This was really cool. I may have a picture of you with the headcam – I’ll check. Doesn’t seem possible that it was three years ago. I really had a good time.
