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. My photographic interest include Travel, the Natural World, Landscapes, and Photographic Techniques. I try to include information for each image as to where, when, why and how the image was processed. Most of the images are available for purchase -- either as prints or rights managed (Clicking on an image brings you to the ShepArt Studio Team Site). Comments about the images or this site are always welcome. DJM

Sunrise and Big Horn Sheep Silhouette.

I got up early and drove out of the fog at the campsite in Theodore Roosevelt National Park. There was a great sunrise view above and looking over the fog covered Little Missouri River. One of the things that Winston Hall taught us was to always look behind, because there may be a better/different image. Sure enough I saw this Big Horn Sheep, and caught a silhouette image of it in mid-air.
