While visiting Twin Falls, Idaho this summer, my sweet mother-in-law asked if I could get her an image of the Twin Falls LDS temple all lit up at night. She wanted to have one to put in her home.
I am going to share with you the settings I used to take the following image.
(Pssst….I also have a surprise for you at the end of this post, so stick with me.)
I used the higher aperture because it was dark and I wanted to make sure that the whole temple was in focus. Notice how slow my shutter speed was as well. This was to compensate for both the darkness and the high aperture setting. In order to avoid movement blur on such a long exposure, I used a tripod and a remote control to activate the camera.
And now are you ready for your surprise??

I have a bit of a crush on Anne of Green Gables.
In college Anne inspired me to work hard and get an “A” in math class. True story. (And nothing short of miraculous since I am not a mathematically minded person.)
I have not yet read the full series, but I have definitely read that first book. Many, many times.
And there has been a passage from it that has been on my mind recently.
“Marilla,” she demanded presently, “do you think that I
shall ever have a bosom friend in Avonlea?”
“A–a what kind of friend?”
“A bosom friend–an intimate friend, you know–a really
kindred spirit to whom I can confide my inmost soul. I’ve
dreamed of meeting her all my life. I never really supposed
I would, but so many of my loveliest dreams have come true
all at once that perhaps this one will, too. Do you think
Well, I may not be named Anne. And I may not live in Avonlea. But I do consider myself uber blessed to have had one of my loveliest dreams come true.
I find it amazing how I met Ms. Katie.
She married my brother-in-law.
That’s right. It is crazy to me that someone came into my life through no decision of my own, who turned out to be such a kindred spirit in so many ways.
I’ll save you from having to read through all of our similarities or all the ways that Katie has enriched my life. Especially since I know that she already knows.
But today I just felt like saying…
Cheers to my intimate friend in whom I can confide my inmost soul. I am forever grateful to have you near.
It has been a truly fantastic year! Lot of changes for me and our family as we made the move from Montana to New Mexico. As I wind down the year I want to thank all of my fabulous clients. You mean the world to me and I am so grateful for your continued love and support!
Here are some of my absolute favorite photos from 2010. Let me tell you, it was near impossible to narrow it down I have so many that I just adore!
May 2011 be filled with uber bliss!! Happy New Year!!
I featured Rachel here a couple of weeks ago – the stunning beauty in the wind.
Today I was still feeling in the wedding mood but I’m not quite ready to post more about my most recent wedding. So instead I thought I’d share more amazingness from Rach!
