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.


Four-Years Ago Today — New Jersey

Bullfrog in a Pond at the Sourland Mountain Preserve. Summer Nature in New Jersey. Image taken with a Nikon 1 V1 + FT1 + 70-300 mm VR lens.

Five uncropped images at different focal lengths. Because of the smaller size sensor on the Nikon 1 camera the equivalent FOV is 2.7x larger. 70 mm (~190 mm); 100 mm (~270 mm); 135 mm (~365 mm); 200 mm (~540 mm); 300 mm (~810 mm). I don't think anyone could hand-hold a 800 mm lens on a 35 mm camera for very long, let alone go for a long hike.
