Cardston Temple 2936 by WayneBenedet Cardston Temple 2936 by WayneBenedet
This is an amazing structure at night.

Comments are appreciated

(If you look closely, you can see some dark blue sky around the building, with trees framing the shot. And even in the foreground, there is subtle detail)

Yes, but unless you are a Mormon, you will never get inside, and even if you are a Mormon you may not.

oh then I will never enter it XD I respect all sorts of faith and have a few friends who are Mormons, but all this secrecy stuff somewhat bothers me... dunno... my Mormon friends think it's normal, while I feel wary of it XD

but then, it's a really interesting building from the outside nonetheless!!!

Nice capture of an impressive piece of architecture.  One assumes it's a Mormon Temple?

Beautiful!!! Wonderful details and variances of tones and shades on the building!

Check it again Sophia.  I noticed this morning, that the sky and foreground detail had been lost.  Sometimes I find that posting to the site increases contrast and I loose subtle details.  So I modified the base file and posted on of slightly lower contrast to allow the details to be visible.

I had noticed the loss in the foreground and sky as well but loved the building ... the changes definitely add to the image though!

I have been here before, many years ago,but never at night.  The building is on a small rise and can be seen from some distance.

(I find that posting it to the site increased contrast and destroyed all the detail in the sky and foreground, something I did not notice last night when I posted, so I made an adjustment for this site and reposted).

I am not sure who designed it Dave.  It is a Mormon Temple in Cardston, Alberta

If I am not mistaken it is a Frank Loyd Wright design.  It is supposed to mimic the Aztec temples.

Just found a history of the temple.  The architect was inspired by Wright's work.
