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 — Chile

The hound guarding Mirador del Payne Hosteria at dawn. Overlooking Lago Verde and Torres del Paine National Park at Estancia Lazo in Patagonia. Image taken with a Nikon D3x camera and 24-120 mm f/4 lens (ISO 100, 40 mm, f/16, 1/60 sec).

One issue with using a DSLR to take images in Patagonia is the wind, and the potential for dust to land on the camera sensor when changing lenses. I had to spend a lot of time removing the dust spots from this image.
