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

A Masked Booby decided to spend the night on the forward deck of the MV World Odyssey. Actually, I think after the bird landed, it found out that there was not enough room to take-off again. It is actually a pretty big bird. Before the students could harass it, or try to feed it bread some members of the crew came out with a blanket to cover the bird. They then took it to an aft deck where there was room for it take-off and fly away. Semester at Sea, Spring 2016 Voyage — Day 11. Image taken with a Fuji X-T1 camera and 35 mm f/1.4 lens (ISO 1600, 35 mm, f/1.4, 1/60 sec). Topaz Define was used in post-processing to remove some noise. I didn't want to use a flash and night-blind the bird.
