"Oquirrh Mountain Temple 1" [2:3]
South Jordan, Utah, USA
In the suburbs of Salt Lake City is this architectural marvel, the Oquirrh Mountain Temple. This LDS (Mormon) temple, sets atop of hill, overlooking the Salt Lake Valley. This shot was taken as a thick band of winter fog rolled through the area, creating a gentle mist in each image. As quickly as the fog bank arrived, it dissipated. As part of the temple's landscape, a fountain runs year-round prominently in front.
"The Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple was built on a bluff on the edge of the Daybreak Community; the property was donated to the church by Kennecott Land, a portion of a company that mines copper and precious minerals from the Oquirrh Mountains, just a few miles west of the temple. The edifice features a single stone spire 193 feet (59 m) high, topped by a 9-foot (2.7 m) statue of the angel Moroni. At the groundbreaking it was announced the structure would be named the Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple; it had previously been known as the South Jordan Utah Temple. Located on an 11-acre (45,000 m2) site, the temple sits at the foot of the Oquirrh Mountains that form the western edge of the Salt Lake Valley and faces east toward a panoramic view of the Wasatch Mountains. From the site, [one] can see the other three temples in the valley: the Draper Utah Temple, Jordan River Utah Temple and the Salt Lake Temple" [source: Wikipedia].
