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 — Pacific Ocean

For those wondering what happened to the Masked Booby that was released the previous evening. It came back and spent the night on the mast of the MV World Odyssey. Semester at Sea, Spring 2016 Voyage — Day 12. Somewhere in the Pacific Ocean as we crossed from Hawaii to Japan. Image taken with a Nikon N1 V3 camera and 70-300 mm VR lens (ISO 6400, 300 mm, f/6.3, 1/60 sec). Raw image processed with Capture One Pro. This picture was taken early dawn before the sun rose, with very little light. I had to push the ISO, and then use the Topaz DeNoise filter to clean the image (the NIK Define filter was not able to handle this much noise).
