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.


Two-Years Ago Today — Southern Atlantic Ocean

Chinstrap Penguin on Elephant Island. This was at the desolate beach on Point Wild where Ernest Shackleton's crew survived for 4 months in 1916 while Shackelton managed to sail to South Georgia. I assume that the Penguins would have been on the menu for the sailors during this time. Image taken with a Leica T camera and 18-56 mm lens (ISO 100, 56 mm, f/16, 1/320 sec). Raw image processed with Capture One Pro, Focus Magic, and Photoshop CC.
