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.


Kiel Canal Time-Lapsed Video

I was part of a team of six photographers that took ~30,000 images as the M/V Explorer (Semester at Sea Spring 2013 Enrichment Voyage) transited the Kiel Canal in Germany. +Howard Ignatius used the images to create this time-lapsed video of the passage through the canal.

    Pretty cool. I liked the passing speed boat. How much tme between your shots?

  3. David Mathre says:

    We had 6 cameras. Forward and Aft were every 10 sec, side views were every 5 sec. I may have some close-up images of the speed boat with a zoom lens, seem to remember that it had a logo about being a world record holder.
