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 (26-May-2007) — Colorado

I spent the day in and around Rocky Mountain National Park. Trail Ridge Road (U.S. 34) was open. This highway crosses the continental divide, and is generally closed due to snow between October and May. This year I saw a note that it would not be open for Memorial Day weekend due to a late season storm. During the day I took over 600 images. I selected images of birds (Black-billed Magpies and Red Crossbills), mammals (Chipmunks, Elk, and Moose), plants & flowers, and landscapes for the following slideshows. My favoriate image of the day was a chipmunk chewing on some grass. I would like feedback regarding presenting the images as slideshows. Note that you can click below the slideshow to stop, start and to see titles. By clicking on an image you go to the image gallery where images can be downloaded and prints can be ordered.
