Oquirrh Mountain Temple

I was out and about last Thursday when the sky had such incredible clouds from the most recent rain storm. I was on the freeway and happened to glance west, where the clouds were exceptionally beautiful over by the new Oquirrh Mountain Temple. I had my camera with me, (unusual), and a little bit of spare time so I took the next exit and headed that way. I drove around the temple several times and was really disappointed because I couldn't find a view I liked. The temple is beautiful, of course, but there was so little greenery, and every view seemed to have big white tents, lots of people, houses, highways with cars, etc. Finally I turned down a side road from the highway in front of the temple in order to turn around, and when I did turn around, this was the view. The tall weeds from this vacant lot, hid the highway in front and the tents and people. I trudged through the weeds and took my picture. There's nothing symbolic about those dark clouds behind the temple (haha), but the sky was so beautiful. For those of you who haven't yet seen this newest temple, I hope you enjoy my picture.
