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: Morning at Taft Point in Yosemte National Park.

Three years ago today I was with a group of Nikonians ANPAT 8 Photographers at Taft Point in Yosemite National Park. I set up a camera with a fisheye lens to record the photographer working Taft Point as the sun lit up the other side of Yosemite Valley. Later, I put on the tripod head-cam to record the hike from Taft Point back to the van. This was the same tripod head-cam set up that I used during Winston Hall’s Nikonians Academy workshop in Arches National Park to make a time-lapsed video of the hike 19-September-2008.

If you are not able to view the video from here it is also available at the ShepartPhotography SmugMug Gallery.
