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.



Saint Catherine Chapel.

I saw a report on the news today that the conference center at the Catholic retreat at Saint Malo behind the Saint Catherine Chapel on Rt 7 in Colorado near Rocky Mountain National Park burned down today. Apparently, the fire did not impact the chapel. It is a great photo location, with Mt Meeker in the background. In most of my images at this location, I used the chapel to hide the conference center. This image is from December 2007, and not on this day in 2007 (or today). I also saw that the eastern side of the Rocky Mountains had a significant wind storm, with winds up to 90 mph. I am not sure how much the high winds impacted the fire.
