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.

Turkey Vultures

For the past several weeks as many (up to 100) turkey vultures have been spending their nights in the neighborhood. There are three houses and several other trees that they favor. The roofs of the homes are beginning to turn white.

The sky is clear today. I hope it stays clear tonight so I can do some night sky, star and meteor trails. Tonight is supposed to be good for the Geminid meteors.
