I’ve spent the past few months tinkering with several different designs for my LDS Temple Photography site. I never really bonded with any of them until this last version.
Decently inspired by Scott Jarvie’s blog (which in turn is a wordpress theme), I have hopefully changed it enough to make it my own. My site is not based on wordpress so the code is all my own and I rebuilt the layout myself. So while it’s visually similar, it was rebuilt from the ground up to work with my different columns, widths and desired colors (I read there was a psd avaialable AFTER I was all done *sigh*).
Anyway, I think this new design provides a much more elegant feel to the site then the temporary site that was up previously, and speaks more to the subject matter. Hopefully others enjoy it as well.

While at a conference in Boston a few friends and I drove out to see the Boston Temple. The walk up to the grounds from where we parked in the lower parking lot was absolutely beautiful. I wish it was a blue sky day, but the colors were still a site to behold.

On a trip up to Nebo Loop I found an area that had trees with just about every color. I gathered one of each and found a nice big aspen trunk to lay them on. Quite pleased with the result.
I still need to get it printed out as a panorama but am excited to see it in person
Edit: Print is beautiful. If you are interested in a copy, my normal printer doesn’t do panoramas (SmugMug) so let me know and we can work something out.
