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 — New Jersey

Jet Flying Past the Waxing Crescent Moon. Image taken with a Nikon D2xs camera and 80-400 mm VR lens (ISO 800, 400 mm, f/5.6, 1/25 sec). I have improved taking pictures of the moon since then.

    +Anne Aas Often times the flight path to Newark goes over my house. That is how I get so many jet trails along with my star trail images.
