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.


One-Year Ago Today — Pacific Ocean

Sequence of seven images of a Brown Booby hunting for breakfast taken from the deck of the MV World Odyssey while crossing the Pacific Ocean. Semester at Sea, Spring 2016 Voyage — Day 6. Nikon 1 V3 camera and 70-300 mm VR lens (ISO 320, 264 mm, f/5.6, 1/1000 sec). Burst mode with this camera is amazing. Also, the field of view with this set-up is equivalent to 710 mm on a 35 mm format camera — and the camera and lens were hand-held. In a few days I will be posting one of my best captures of the voyage — where the Brown Booby catches a flying fish.
