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.


Sap from the Maple trees was running 6 weeks early this year

The trees were tapped and the collection started on New Years Day. Over 100 gallons of the sap needed to be boiled down and concentrated to make 2 gallons of maple syrup. Image taken with a Leica T camera and 23 mm f/1.4 lens (ISO 640, 23 mm, f/2, 1/125 sec).
