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

Red Hot Poker Flower (Kniphofia uvaria) at Mirador del Payne Hosteria in Estancia Lazo, near Torres del Paine National Park. Image taken with a Leica D-Lux 5 camera (ISO 125, 5 mm, f/4, 1/400 sec).

Compare with the image I posted yesterday of the same scene, but taken with a Nikon DSLR camera. Sometimes, a point and shoot does pretty good. This image has much more depth of field, which I didn't want when I took the image with the other camera.
