Temple After the Storm by melanicus Temple After the Storm by melanicus
This Mormon temple in San Diego seems completely out of place. One evening after a thunderstorm had just passed, it suddenly came to life.

The first time I saw the San Diego Temple I was eight and I was coming home from the beach with my uncle and brother. My brother and I looked at each other and said, "Disneyland!" To this day whenever I watch a disney movie I am reminded of the San Diego Temple.

We call it the 'Sugar Castle' 'cause it looks so WHITE. It coulda melted in the rain, but it didn't. Ah, well. Nice snapshot, BTW. What time of day and date was this taken? There's been so much storm here in San Diego, I've lost count on WHICH specific days were wet >_<

*___* It's so pretty but mysterious at the same time! I've never seen/been to the San Diego temple...I've only seen in real life the LA, I think Las Vegas, Logan (I think...)and Hilo (I know I've seen more, but I can't remember their names >>;;; ). All the others seem to have eluded me O_o;;;

whaa... that is a mind boggling shot, at first I thought that you had drawn it on the computer or taken it from stock photos and manipulated it. It looks absolutely amazing.

I think it's an understandable mistake to think that it's a castle, it's one castle-y looking temple; verrry beautiful.

I havent gotten to see this one, but I am reminded of the portland oregon Temple..

People drive over the hill in Lake oswago and there on the right is the bright white marble temple.... THEY started to have crashes... The concern for this was great so they decided to surround the temple with huge fur trees. WOnderful picture I am sooo amazed!

To add as an after thought, I can very seldom get the camera at the right time to take good pictures, nor can I get it nicely position iwhtin the picture. Cameras are not for me.

of curse there is no evidence of that on my account... heh heh

Unless you go looking through my alternative account.

Thank you!

Photographs, for me, are rare gifts-- it's like divine intervention when one is able to actually capture something very very fleeting, and then be able to give it to someone else.

The San Diego Temple is probably my favorite of all the LDS temples (Washington DC is another fav) - what a beautiful shot. I'm wondering/seeking permission if I could render this photo artistically...

thanks so much! I'll keep you posted on the work as well. Do you know how big the hi-res file is? If it's smaller than 2mb you can send it to limestarch@yahoo.com - if it's larger than that let me know and I'll arrange something...

thanks again :)
