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.

Winter Comes Early in Northern Nevada.

An early snow storm closed Tioga Pass, and I ended up having to find a different route home from the Nikonians ANPAT-8 in Yosemite National Park. I detoured north to Interstate 80, and crossed the Sierra Nevada at Donner Pass. As I moved east on I-80 I started catching up to the early winter storm. I took this image of Pilot Mountain in northern Nevada as the storm clouds were clearing. I caught up with the storm when I got to Salt Lake City, and spent the night.
