Oquirrh Mountain LDS Temple art


I have been completely captivated with the wonderful sculpted clouds that have been decorating our skies these last several weeks. This day was like many of these with wonderful clouds up in the air. I have been wanting to shoot Oquirrh Mountain Temple in the evening with the sun behind it for a while. When I setup my tripod I soon realized the clouds were actually going to be somewhat of a problem, they were really moving! Why is this a problem you ask? I am shooting HDR imagery which means you have to take several images back to back with different exposures and then combine them into one. This process is trickier when things are moving such as clouds etc. My Idaho Falls shoot was much the same. On the up side, with the clouds moving so rapidly, you just had to wait five minutes if something wasn't right in the sky to get the next shot.

What's next for me? I have been wanting to get up north to Brigham City, Bountiful, maybe Logan. I'm also planning another walk around the Salt Lake Temple.
Thanks for reading.
