"Spring at the Temple"
Salt Lake City, Utah, USA
I ventured to the Salt Lake City Temple during spring specifically to capture this shot. I walked around the Temple several times before arriving at this perspective. I wanted to catch the contrast between the gray (drab) tone of the architecture and the brilliant red blossoms. The added bonus was placing the Angel Moroni statue in the composition, to further add contrast.
The Salt Lake Temple is located in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. The Temple belongs to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Mormons.
Chad Dutson is a wilderness photographer who occasionally ventures into fine art portraiture. He strives to capture the finest nature scenes possible, frequently taking adventures to extreme levels to capture "the shot." He has experienced hypothermia, been stung by a scorpion, waited for hours in twenty degree (20F/-7C) temperatures, nearly stepped on a rattlesnake, and stood for hours under pelting rain through a lightning storm.
"Some say they lose themselves in one thing or another; however I find myself through photography, losing only the sense of time. I frequently shoot from sunset to sunrise. Photography brings out the passion I feel for both nature and humanity." -- Chad Dutson
