Not sure what I was thinking going out on such a cold night, probably around 12 degrees (-11c) and having to trek through some rather deep snow, but it did seem to work out well enough to capture this vantage point. This is the L.D.S. Temple in downtown Salt lake City on a frigid winters evening.

It most certainly was worth trekking thought the snow to capture this,it's a stunning image. It reminds me a little of the Disney castle but with a lot more class. Beautiful building, and especially presented against the backdrop of the wonderful city lights.
Tanks for sharing.
All the best

Jason, winter's the perfect time to take a shot like this of the LDS church, which when lit up resembles an ice sculpture in a lot of ways. Great POV you've found, and the way the shot stretches out behind the church is amazing. Thanks for this one.

Very nice POV and night exposure. The illumination of the temple makes it look more like a castle. I like the lights of the city that dot the background, too. Your trek was a successful one since, you captured a beautiful view. :-)

Thousands of small lights decorating the big temple in white illumination, Jason.
Fabulous night shot, well rendered the impressive and prominently edifice on town.
Maybe I'd crop the lower part, but this would be only my oppinion.

This church which is so beautifully illuminated looks like a temple of light and stands out impressively like a diamond in the middle of your composition. The picture is perfectly exposed and quite detailed, and the little lights in the distance make for a magical backdrop. Really nice.

Looking at all that snow, I can imagine how cold it was, but it was worth the effort! I recognized the church from the thumbnail - it's impressive, specially at night!
You found a very good pov and the exposure is very good also!
