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.


Nine-Years Ago Today — Colorado

Nearly full waning moon setting. I was driving to Arapaho National Wildlife Preserve on Colorado highway 14 through Roosevelt National Forest when I saw this. I had to stop and try to get a picture before the moon fell behind the hill and trees. Image taken with a Nikon D2xs camera and 80-400 mm VR lens (ISO 400, 400 mm, f/11, 1/640 sec). A few dust spots on the sensor before I got the courage to do a wet clean of the sensor.
