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 — Minnesota

Mississippi River Headwaters. The only place you can cross the Mississippi River by foot. Itasca State Park. I did this as a kid many, many years ago and ended up with several leaches on my legs. Image taken with a Nikon D200 camera and 18-80 mm kit lens (ISO 100, 18 mm, f/5, 1/800 sec).
