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.


Last Night — New Jersey

Star Trails and Clouds Looking South. By early morning condensation on the lens made the center of the images blurry. Each image is a composite of 50 images taken with a Nikon D810a camera and 14-24 mm f/2.8 lens (ISO 200, 14 mm, f/4, 120 sec). Raw images processed with Capture One Pro and the composite created using Photoshop CC (statistics, maximum).

I have had this problem with condensation (and in the winter frost) with this lens in the past. I am looking into getting a flexible electric heater strap, just to heat the lens slightly to prevent the condensation. Has anyone else had and solved this problem?
