I’m a lover of art and beauty. Always have been. And in my opinion, there is nothing more beautiful and inspiring that man makes than that which he does to honor his God. Whichever god that may be. Whether in the form of a cathedral, a mosque, a synagogue, a temple, or what have you, I am always attracted to beautiful and godly buildings.
This Sunday I will share with you a few of my favorite LDS temples, each with its own beauty. I love the LDS temples, and I hope to be able to capture all of them some day. For now, here’s a start.
Having attending college at BYU, I have probably been to the Provo Temple most often. These photos were taken just after a light snow. My intention had been to capture a sunrise with all its various colors, but the cloud cover remained. Still, it provided its own pale blue beauty.
There is, of course, the famous Salt Lake Temple, visited by Mormons and non-Mormons alike from all over the world.
One of my own favorite LDS temples to capture is the Idaho Falls temple. On my way up to Yellowstone one year, I stopped at this temple one evening and was treated to an amazing array of natural backdrops at the sky’s rapid changing.
And, last but not least, the historic St. George Temple, with its own visitor’s center and Christus statue as well.
