Seeing the Lights

Monday night we went to see the lights at Temple Square. It wasn't quite like seeing the lights at the Mesa Temple last year where we didn't even need jackets, but it was warmer than it has been the last few nights so it wasn't too bad! We loved all of the orange and red lights they had this year. Is that a ghost? It took awhile for us to figure out what setting to use on our camera to get good pictures. We also started using a little tripod we keep in the camera case to steady the camera. But our first few pictures turned out similar to this!
Skye loved these snowflake lights.
She asked me to take a picture of her by one!
She also loved all of the fountains. We spent a lot of time just looking at the water.
I got some good pictures, though, in the meantime! I love the luminaries on the reflecting pool and how they have this manger scene there.

After walking around Temple Square, we headed over to the Conference center before going back to the car. We got some good pictures of the temple and more lights.
It is definitely beautiful and magnificent even if it is cold!

You guys take some magnificent pictures- I especially love the candle bubbles on the water and the temple pictures. Gorgeous.
