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.

Netherlands Coast Guard Rescue Helicopter. Semester at Sea, Spring 2013 Enrichment Voyage. Day 30.

The Netherlands Coast Guard Rescue Helicopter (G-BIMU, Stac Pollaidh) hovered off the Semester at Sea M/V Explorer as we traveled along the coast of Netherlands on our way to Oslo, Norway. The helicopter did an amazing job of staying stationary right next to our ship. They wanted to do a drill, but had to leave as they were running low on fuel. I liked the expression on the pilot and co-pilots faces.
