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 — Wyoming

Devils Tower National Monument. Image taken with a Nikon D200 camera and 80-400 mm VR lens (ISO 100, 200 mm, f/5.6, 1/400 sec). JPG image processed with Capture One Pro, and converted to B&W with NIK/Google Silver Efex Pro.

The freaky thing is that I watched "Close Encounters" at the motel I stayed at the night before, and didn't know that part of the movie was filmed at Devils Tower.

    I plan to stop at Devils Tower on my return trip from Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons end of September.

    +John Roach I've been to Devils Tower twice since then (actually 3 times, but gave up on the third since it was motorcycle week at Sturges, and there was a line bikers nearly a mile long waiting to go in). It is a bit off of the interstate, so make sure you allow enough time. It is definitely worth doing the hike all the way around the tower. I want to go back some time and do a night image of the tower with the milky way in the background.
