Monday (28-March-2011) — California to New Jersey

Gone to See California. Day 9: Return Flight from San Francisco to New Jersey. Aerial Views from Across America.

I took a number of images while flying back from San Francisco to New Jersey after attending a four-day Photography Workshop in Death Valley lead by Michael Mariant.  For this flight I did have a window seat, and a GPS to record locations (when above 10,000 ft). I like taking images with a Leica V-Lux 20 and X1 camera while flying rather than a much larger DLSR. The first images are of Mono Lake in eastern California. The first with the X1, and the second with the V-Lux 20.

Aerial View of Mono Lake from 36,000 feet and 27 miles during a commercial flight from San Francisco to Newark. Image acquired with a Leica X1 (ISO 100, 24 mm, f/6.3, 1/1000 sec). Processed: Capture One 6 Pro (raw conversion, haze reduction), Photoshop CS5, Focus Magic (sharpening), Nik Define 2 (noise reduction), Photoshop CS5 (save for web). (David J Mathre)

I am a scientist by training (Eckerd College, BSc; Caltech, Ph.D.). I worked for 27 years as a Chemist in the Pharmaceutical Industry developing processes to manufacture medicines for human and animal health. I now spend my time as a photographer updating images in My Image of the Day Photoblog, and My eBird (with images of nearly 450 bird species). hope post COVID-19 to be a world traveler again. My interests include the natural world, wildlife, landscapes, sky, and seascapes, travel, and astrophotography. I look for unique ways of viewing the world and presenting my images. I have traveled to over 55 countries in six continents, often on Semester at Sea voyages. While at home in New Jersey, I spend time on home renovation and expansion of a wildflower garden/meadow.
