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.
Nine Days Ago — Backyard Spring Nature in New Jersey
Fireflies Flashing in the Night. Composite of 123 images taken with a Nikon D800 camera and 105 mm f/2.8 VR macro lens (ISO 1600, 105 mm, f/8, 30 sec). Composite processed with Photoshop CC, statistics, maximum.
Now that I have an internet connection at home, catching up with some images from the last few weeks. The fireflies appeared about 10 days earlier this year. I'll repost images from 4 and 5 years ago today.
