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.

Ten-Years Ago (20-May-2007) — Colorado

Springtime in Rocky Mountain National Park. It was great when I was working part-time in Boulder, Colorado. I got to see Rocky Mountain National Park in all four seasons. At this time there were lots of spring wildflowers, at least in the lower elevations. Someone told me the yellow thing that looked like flowers on a conifer tree was some type of fungus. Later during the afternoon, rain clouds came in and I got the following panorama.
