Reno Nevada Temple

We visited the Reno Nevada Temple on Day Four of our California Temple Trip. In the morning we were at the Oakland Temple and in afternoon we visited the Sacramento Temple. While we were in the temple darkness fell and allowed for a few night shots. We stayed overnight in Reno and traveled home the next day.

Over the years, figures of the angel Moroni have become more robust as sculptors have added muscle tone and bulk to the figure. While sculpting his version of Moroni, Karl Quilter used human models to help him accurately shape muscles and correctly depict a body standing atop a ball. (New Era)

  1. darkest fell -> darkness fell

  2. Pretty nice pictures. I stopped by here on a tour recently. How did you get those statue shots? Zoom lens? My favorite physical feature on the building.

    • I got the zoom shots with a Canon PowerShot SX200 IS. It fits in my pocket but has a 12X optical zoom. The new SX210, which replaces the SX200, has a 14X zoom. Very handy.
