Salt Lake Temple

Salt Lake Temple in Winter

I don't like winter! I don't like cold, snowy scenes unless I'm viewing them through a window as I'm sitting by a nice warm fireplace! Therefore, my winter photo collection is slim. And so this photo of the Salt Lake Temple is a first for me. Most of my pictures of the temple include the bright, colorful flowers of spring. And the only other winter photos I have of this temple are surrounded by a gazillion sparkly Christmas lights. But, somehow, the soft, muted neutral colors on this day seemed to match my mood. Haven't decided if it is a keeper or not.

Its different and nice muted tones. Its a keeper. Where did you take the shot from?

This is a definite keeper, Karen. It is a lovely shot! And it is a huge building, so many spires. Wow!

Diane, this was taken from the top floor of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. Because it was a gray day and there were no lights close by me, I was able to get this shot through the window without any reflections.

I love this high-up, muted view of the Temple. That pale sky is wonderful, too!

It looks so well planned. All the muted colors compliment one another. It's definitely a keeper.

Karen, definitely a keeper! Fabulous shot of a equally fabulous building!

I actually like photographing snow, but I never seem to be around those beautiful snow covered landscapes I see everywhere :)
