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


Farm Friday — Iceland

    +Liz C I think it is to help keep them dry. In the summer with the long hours of daylight they seem to pop up in the fields with white, green, blue, or black covers – and I remember someone calling them Icelandic Mushrooms.
