Photo of the Week 79

Photo of the Week 79
It's here.  Friday has arrived again today.  It's time for the announcement of Cramer Imaging's featured "Photo of the Week."  This week, we are pleased to present this photograph of the Idaho Falls temple spire against the sunset as our chosen image.

The photo came to be in pursuit of some cover art for religious music.  I needed something which would convey an abstract concept in concrete terms.  If you have ever tried doing that, you know just what a challenge that can be.

I had just gotten the concept down earlier that week.  I was deciding which temple would be the best to use for this purpose.  It wasn't easy despite close access to several temples in reasonable driving range.

The afternoon that I took this photo, I had a feeling that this was the day.  I couldn't point to any reason why but I decided to go for it.  Such feelings don't usually let me down.

Once my spouse got off work, we discussed it and quickly packed up to head north on the freeway.  We debated whether Idaho Falls (closed for maintenance) or Rexburg was the better choice.  I was leaning to trying both just in case but I wasn't sure the light would last long enough to reach Rexburg.

Once we arrived at the Idaho Falls temple, I was initially disappointed.  This beautiful light, peaking right then, was not lighting up the Angel Moroni statue on the spire.  Thankfully, we drove around the perimeter just in case.  The angle I wanted was fully lit.

I got out of the car and took a few shots of different distances.  Once I was done, I noticed that the glorious sunset light was now fading.  There was no point in traveling on the Rexburg.  We had arrived just in time for this beautiful shot.
