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.


Today (07-May-2017) — New Jersey

First Sunday in the Park organized by Montgomery Friends of Open Space. This month it was a walk through Rock Mill Preserve looking for spring wildflowers led by Sarah Roberts. Although it was cool and there were a few sprinkles, we did see a number of wildflower and other spring growth along the trail. Images taken with a Fuji X-T1 camera and 60 mm f/2.4 macro lens.

  1. Spring has sprung. Very nice images.

    BTW, David….my wife and I bought a house just outside of Richmond, VA and are in the process of moving completing by Mid-July. She retires June 30th. I am looking forward to the image making opportunities in all directions from Richmond and even more travel. I am doing some last bits of photography here in the greater Milwaukee area when not involved with selling/showing the Condo and making a few trips to VA between now and the final move to start up the new home. In June, I will be taking one of the cars with all my camera gear and leaving same and flying back to get the other car with final move stuff after the Moving Company packs us out and takes off. I will keep you posted.

    I enjoy your pictures on your blog when I get chance to see them.

    The best, John

      Thanks, I’ve been working on the never ending home renovation project and most recently setting up a wildflower meadow in my backyard. I hope to keep the deer away. DJM
