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

Early Morning Silhouette of a Big Horn Sheep in Midair. Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Image taken with a Nikon D700 and 80-400 mm VR lens (ISO 220, 400 mm, f/11, 1/1600 sec).

This is what I saw when I turned around when shooting the sunrise over the Missouri river. Thanks to +Winston Hall who taught me to always look behind because there may be a better picture.
