Jordan River Temple

The Jordan River Utah Temple as dusk falls.  We were driving out of the parking lot after visiting the temple and had to stop to take a picture as the lights came on as dusk fell.  I wasn't expecting to take pictures, so I didn’t have a tripod and had to hope things would turn out fine with a handheld picture.

Spiral Jetty


The well-known piece of installation art in the Great Salt Lake known as Spiral Jetty.  I visited early in the morning and the site was quiet and peaceful as a sunny summer day dawned.  The drive through farmland and then the desolate but beautiful countryside was also well worth it.

Известная ленд-арт-инсталляция в Большом Солёном озере под назвением Спиральная дамба.  Я её посешал рано утром и это место было тихо и мирно пока рассветал солнечный летний день.  Тоже было очень приятно ехать туда через сельскохозяйственный район и затем через пустынную и красивую пустыню.

Church of Sts. Theodore


The Church of the Sts. Theodore in Mystras, Greece.  The clouds that provide such a nice backdrop here continued to amass and then unleashed during a summer thunderstorm that drenched us all.
