Bountiful Utah Temple Photos

My History: The Bountiful Utah Temple

My photography hobby started in 1997 with the plan to take just a couple of photos at as many temples as I could possibly visit. Film was expensive after all. Back then, there were only about 50 temples, but there were a couple being added every year.

The Bountiful Utah Temple was dedicated just 3 years earlier. As such, when I visited it for the first time, it was the youngest temple I had ever visited. And I have continued to visit it, 16 visits at least when writing.

This was one of a couple of trips to photograph temples taken with a gal I was dating at the time. We had a fun time, and as I recall, got to see some nice wildlife as we hiked the hill east of the Temple

Another year, another trip with another girl I was dating. This quite possibly counts as the best daylight set I got at the Bountiful Utah Temple during my days using film.

Another beautiful daytime photo shoot, and another several hours remove dust from photos because I had not learned how to properly clean the camera yet.

This shoot was well after I had begun 3D. The whole point of this visit was to get details for my 3D model. There are many fun angles in here because of this.

Part of the Second Epic Temple Trip, we managed to arrive at the Bountiful Utah Temple right as the sunrise was working its way down the tower.

I was here with my family today for a cousins wedding. It was a bright, hot sunny day, and like all photo shoots since going digital, the inside of my camera was covered with dust.

I was taking a photography class, and was in the mood to experiment with Panorama images. Plus when I got there the sky was doing all kinds of fun stuff. So, nearly 500 images later I left with some good shots and a reminder I need to use a tripod more often.

This was part of my mid-December break from school. I had started in Payson and worked my way north, just for 12/12/12.

Part of the 2013 Epic Temple trip taken between myself and my mission companion. this was our shortest trip, and bountiful was a late morning stop just before lunch.

A day trip, the likes of which I used to take all the time. I started out north, and worked my way south through out the day. The wonder of living on the Wasatch Front is that this trip encompassed more temples in a single day than most people will see in a year.

On our way for a mini weekend camping trip, my family and I stopped at the Bountiful Temple for some photos on the way.

From the fourth, and most likely last, of the epic temple trips I took with my mission companion. This visit was on our third day, and near dinner time.
