Salt Lake City

Moroni on grey, a photo by webmink on Flickr.

I’ve visited Salt Lake City in Utah a few times, but I’ve only had the chance to explore its Mormon heritage once. The day I toured was not ideal for photography, so in the spirit of my photographic muse Galen Rowell, this photo captures an icon of the experience perfectly. The huge Mormon temple in the centre of Salt Lake City includes this representation of the angel Moroni, complete with trumpet. The background is the natural isolation of the grey sky and has not been artificially created.
