A Cold Mount Timpanogos Temple

I keep forgetting to post here on the blog various photos I’ve been making. Recently I got up early at the prompting of a fellow photographer to try and capture the Mount Timpanogos temple after a fresh snowfall. I learned early on a Monday morning the gates are in fact locked, and the lights turn off a bit too early to capture the morning light changing. Still, if we get another good storm this winter I plan to come back again and try to catch a this scene with some better clouds in the sky.

Every time I get out to make a specific photo situation, I’m reminded it’s often the experience I find just as rewarding as the end results. There’s probably some life lesson on there if you look hard enough.

Salt Lake City Temple Square Lights 2013

I’m currently serving as a Church Service Missionary (CSM) as a photographer for the Publishing Services division. It’s been a fun experience, giving a purpose to creating some themed photos on a regular basis.
