Season Reflections

Linking to Weekend Reflections
InSPIREed Sunday
and Shadow Shot Sunday 2

While waiting for my massage, being a few minutes early, I saw this awesome image - It not only took a good shot of the Purple Turtle with the purple roof but also a grand view of our mountains. Once a month I get one of those massages that leaves my back polka dotted with color - using those Chinese cups not with fire like they showed on The Amazing Race but with suction cups. It really does help relax the muscles in my back and neck and reduces the severity of my migraines.


Out of all the photos that I took last Friday evening just before the performance of Santino Fontana singing with the Sesame Street Muppets and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Concert, this is the only one that turned out. A reflection of the nativity scene on water with the temple reflections in the water. There is a definitely a trick to photographing nice scenes of which I am clueless.

I wish I could take credit for this lovely photo but my daughter took it looking down from a high rise building in Salt Lake City one week ago.

This guard is watching over all those angels that I photographed several weeks ago.

Your rear view is beautiful with the mountains and the purple. The nativity scene and the Temple is one of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen!! The lights on the water, the golden trees, the reflections! It is truly breathtaking! You did wonderful job photographing it.
