HAPPY NEW YEAR FRIENDS! The sun sets on another year. Hopefully it has been one filled with fond memories, personal growth, fun times, and gratitude to have been given the gift of life for one more year and having had the courage and determination to live through the challenges and heartaches many of us have also had to face. May we all look forward to 2017 with renewed hope, faith, fortitude and the desire to be better people, live healthier lives, speak kinder words, and enjoy new experiences to the fullest!
(....oh, and find more great photo ops!!)

Holiness to the LORD

'Holiness to the Lord.  The House of the LORD'

It took the early Mormon pioneers 40 years to built this beautiful temple to worship their God and Savior Jesus Christ.

Christmas on Temple Square (2)

Christmas Lights On Steroids! 

I thought this was an interesting contrast between the simple glow of a lantern trying to compete with what looks like a zillion Christmas tree lights in the background.

Christmas on Temple Square

Salt Lake Temple

Christmas on Temple Square. There is nothing that puts me in the Christmas spirit more that visiting Temple Square at Christmas time....even if I was surrounded by thousands of other people enjoying the experience. It is a beautiful place to remember the reason for the season!

Fall & Winter

I'll Be the One Wearing Yellow Mom!

Sometimes photography is about noticing the details or seeing something common in an unusual way. This effect was created in camera with a specialty lens.
