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


Noctilucent Clouds

Late night on 10-June-2013 I looked out from my window on the MV Explorer and saw Noctilucent clouds. I had read about (http://www.spaceweather.com/) , but never seen Noctilucent clouds before. The clouds are ice crystals that are very high that you can only see for a short time when the sun is below the horizon. We were in the Baltic Sea traveling from Stockholm in Sweden to Copenhagen in Denmark and the sun doesn't set until very late I set up a camera in my cabin and took a set of 99 images that I made into this time-lapsed video (Nikon D4, 28 mm f/1.8 lens (ISO 200, 28 mm, f/1.8, 1 sec)).
