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.

Hosteria El Pilar and Perito Moreno Glacier Patagonia

Three years ago today I was on a Photo Safari with Thom Hogan in Patagonia. We departed  Hosteria El Pilar near El Chaltén and proceeded to Perito Moreno Glacier, Los Glaciares National Park . I got up early for one final view of Mount Fitz Roy at dawn. This morning it was hidden behind the orange clouds, but still a dramatic panorama. Before leaving, I got more colorful lupine flower images.  After a long drive, we arrived at Perito Moreno Glacier.
