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.

Female Snowy Owl.

It is cold tonight. I don’t have a new image for today so I am posting an edited B&W with one color version of an image that I posted on Google+ today as part of the daily #BirdPoker series/challenge curated by +Phil Armishaw. Someday I hope to be able to get an image of a Snowy Owl in the wild. I took the original picture at the Antwerp Zoo in September while on the Fall 2012 Semester at Sea voyage. Also, memory of the replicant owl’s eyes in the movie “Blade Runner”

    sort of scary and cartoonesque.
