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

    +duane anderson Agree, he was really working. I was glad when they finally got there. Power had been off for many days.

    I used to watch my neighbor go off to work for days on end during hurricane season. Even when his own power was out for weeks at a time.

    If that 'Cap' is 400 lbs, I wonder how much he weighs in total 😉
