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 (03-May-2008) — Colorado

I spent the day at Rocky Mountain National Park. Early spring, and the upper elevations are still closed due to snow. There were a number of birds and mammals looking for food. I finally was able to identify one of the birds that I took a picture of that day as a Grey-headed Junco. I also spent some time using a 24 mm f/3.5 PC-E lens to do some landscape images.
