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


History Thursday — Russia

Gone to See Europe Day 59. Semester at Sea, Summer 2014 Voyage.

Fort Alexander is a naval fortress on an artificial island in the Gulf of Finland near Kronstadt. It was built between 1838 and 1845 and named after Emperor Alexander I. In 1899–1917, the fort housed a research laboratory on plague and other bacterial diseases.

Composite of 3 images taken with a Fuji XT1 camera and 23 mm f/1.4 lens (ISO 200, 23 mm, f/11). Raw image processed with Capture One Pro, NIK HDR Efex Pro, Focus Magic, and Photoshop CC.

I was not able to visit the Fortress that day because of another "government function" taking place at the fort — but all I saw were a couple of fisherman.
