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.


Today — New Jersey

Six of last of my wildflowers this autumn (coreopsis, cosmos, and black eyed susan. It was too windy to take the pictures outside, and it is going to freeze tonight so I cut these to take pictures inside. Images taken with a Nikon D810a camera and 60mm f/2.8 macro lens.

The wildflower garden was successful this year so I plan to expand it next spring. The deer and rabbits nibbled at the edges, but left me enough to take a lot of pictures of the wildflowers. I think my faviorates were the poppies where I tried many times to do time-lapsed videos of them opening in the morning.
