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.

Nine-Years Ago (09-March-2008) — Colorado

One of the things that I loved when working part time in Boulder was the chance to go to Rocky Mountain National park nearly every weekend. Several of the roads on the east side of the park are kept open year round. The following are some images I took of the landscape and the animals in the park.

Winter trail and panorama at Lily Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park. Composite of five images taken with a Nikon D3 camera and 24-70 mm f/2.8 lens (ISO 200, 24 mm, f/16, 1/160 sec). Raw images processed with Capture One Pro and the composite generated using AutoPano Giga Pro. The jags in the contrails unfortunately show that the upper winds were strong while taking the five images. (David J Mathre)
