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

Pacific Ocean Sunrise Panorama viewed from the aft deck of the MV World Odyssey. Semester at Sea, Spring 2016 Semester Voyage — Day 14. Crossing the ocean from Hawaii to Japan. Composite of 20 images taken with a Nikon 1 V3 camera and 70-300 mm VR lens (ISO 200, 82 mm, f/8, 1/250 sec). Raw images processed with Capture One Pro and the panorama created using AutoPano Giga Pro.

I never got tired of going out to see the sunrise and sunset during the voyage. Each day they were unique (weather permitting) and a new challenge to decide on how to best compose an image. I was more than willing to miss an extra hour or two of sleep just to see what the next day would bring.
