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.


Six-Years Ago Today — Argentina

Silhouette of Mount Fitzroy at dusk from Hosteria El Pilar in El Chalten. We had just finished the main dinner course and were bringing out the dessert. We saw this developing out the window, and all of us ran outside to take some pictures. I only had my point and shoot camera in my pocket and was not going to take the time to go back to my room no knowing how the orange clouds would last. "The best camera is the one with you". I like the version that +Thomas Paris took and he made some beautiful prints. Image taken with a Leica D-Lux 5 camera (ISO 80, 19.2 mm, f/5.6, 1/100 sec).
