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.

Pictures of a squirrel in my backyard after finding a nut. The images were taken with a Nikon 1 V1 camera, FT1 adapter, and 70-200 mm f/2.8 VRII lens. I prefer the squirrels outside rather than doing damage in my attic. I’ve put up flashing lights and ultrasonic noisemakers in my attic to try keeping them outside.
