A Photo a Week Challenge: Religious buildings

Salt Lake Temple at Christmas

Christmas in Salt Lake City is never complete without a visit to Temple Square to see the lights. The Salt Lake Temple is an impressive architectural masterpiece that took 40 years to build. It is an icon of Utah and the LDS church. During the warmer months, the grounds are resplendent with flowers and manicured landscaping.

So many cities throughout the world have amazing religious buildings. We found this beautiful ceiling in Bath Abbey, Bath, England.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Lights

With the Christmas season upon us, lights have become an important part of most people’s homes and cubicles at work. At the Draper City Park, this tree is the center point of their light display. To get this shot, I placed my tripod on the hill overlooking the tree and asked people to let me get a clear shot.

Snowy cabin

Snow cabin Snow cabinMy grandfather built our family cabin in 1954. It’s located in the High Uinta Mountains in the National Forest. It’s a bit isolated (cell phone reception is sketchy at best, and only down the mountain a mile at the highway), but it has electricity and cold running water (indoor plumbing, it’s gonna be big). As a child, my family would spend most of our summer vacation time here.
