MORMON TEMPLE, BOUNTIFUL, UTAH
One thing is for sure: the Mormon temples dominate the landscape. Nowhere is this more true than in Bountiful, Utah (except maybe San Diego…and Washington DC). This photograph came about because I was doing what most Parisians never do: climb the Eiffel Tower or stand atop the Arc de Triomphe. Those from Salt Lake City never go float in the the Great Salt Lake, even when people from out of town beg to do it. And here sat this temple, dominating the landscape overlooking Bountiful, Utah and the Great Salt Lake itself. The whiteness of the structure will always be a pleasing color of the subject of a photograph, both in winter and in summer. Although it had been a light winter, the new snow and departing storm had still left the air crisp and clean. Setting up on the area behind the structure, I waited until the mix of ambient light evened with the artificial light of the temple. I used a 2-stop Graduated Neutral Density Filter from Singh-Ray to make sure I had a dense edge on top of the photograph.
