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.


Ten-Years Ago Today — Michigan

Miners Castle at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Image taken with a Nikon D200 and 80-400 mm VR lens (ISO 100, 85 mm, f/4.5, 1/750 sec). Apparently there was a 2nd pillar of rocks on top of the castle that collapsed in April that year.

I only had the camera a few days, and only the Nikon manual to learn how to use it. Unfortunately, I didn't know better and only shot jpg images during my "Gone to See America 2009 Roadtrip". Every now and then I surprised myself with an image that I really liked. And thus got hooked on digital photography.
