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.


Seven-Years Ago Today — North Dakota

Sunrise Over a Fog Covered Missouri River at Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota. Image taken with a Nikon D300 and 18-200 mm VR lens (ISO 200, 60 mm, f/22, 1/100 sec).

I didn't sleep well thinking about the Bison wandering around the campsite. I got up early to a thick fog. I drove slowly up to a higher view site for sunrise, and was rewarded to an amazing sunrise. When I turned around there was an even better picture –for another post.
