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

Great Sand Dune National Park

I drove from Boulder to Alamosa Colorado to visit the Alamosa National Wildlife Reserve. Unfortunately, because it was so late in the season and very dry not many birds remained. I then stopped by Great Sand Dunes National Park. I was able to get some panorama images of the sand dunes and the dry Medano creek bed. Also got some images of folks bringing sleds up the dunes. Need to come back in the spring both for Alamosa National Wildlife Reserve with migrating birds, and to see Medano creek with water flowing.

Great Sand Dunes Panorama taken from the Visitor Center. Composite of 7 images taken with a Nikon D2xs and 17-35 mm f/2.8 lens (ISO 100, 35 mm, f/11, 1/80 sec). Processed using DxO, AutoPano Giga, Photoshop CS5.

Walking to the dunes with sleds. Image taken with a Nikon D2xs and 200-400 mm f/4 VR lens (ISO 100, 200 mm, f/5.6, 1/1000 sec).
