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.


Last Night — New Jersey

Another clear autumn night. Star, moon, and jet trails looking south from my backyard. Composite of ~ 60 images before and after midnight using a Nikon D810a camera and 14-24 mm f/2.8 lens.

  1. Good that the old Gplus has zooming in in the pictures.

    Great work!

    +Dieter Fröhling Thanks. I like the fact that the D810a camera allows me to take up to 900 second (15 minute) exposures without needing to use an intervalometer. That way when I stack them, there are not as many gaps when doing overnight star trails.

  3. Yup +David Mathre that was one argument too for me for the D810a. But i had to diveded my budget…. So i am stuck with the D800 and M9 🙂
