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.

Storm Clouds over the Refinery in Sinclair Wyoming.

I left Salt Lake City, and continued my drive east on I-80. A lot of snow fell during the night, but the highway was open. It must have been bad the previous night since there were several tractor trailers off the road. Once I got into Wyoming, the highway got better. I took this image of a refinery while driving through Sinclair. Interesting historical note, this route is also known as the Lincoln Highway, which was the first transcontinental automobile road that went all the way across the United States. I used to live near New Jersey Route 27, which was also part of the Lincoln Highway in Edison New Jersey.
