Gothic Clouds

You may remember this building from my earlier post, Salt Lake City County Building.  It is part of my morning skyline when I look to the north from my workplace in downtown.  This photo is untreated…and the building still looks awesome, especially with the powerful clouds.

  7. We are so sparse in how we construct our buildings now, there’s nothing for the imagination to wrap around. I love old architecture because it is so detailed. Oddly enough, I rarely went to the SLC government offices so I don’t remember this! (I grew up in Provo.) It is a beauty, that’s for sure!

    • We seem to have come to that, Dezra…and there are a couple of other buildings near downtown SLC that have very similar features…both are churches that were built during the same period…rather ornate…and beautiful in their own way….

  8. That building looks to me like it belongs in Europe. The clouds look like rain clouds-hope they dropped some.

    • It does have a bit of the “old world” to it, doesn’t it, Allen? And no…no rain….those were just teaser clouds….

  9. Scott! You are an instant genius with the camera! I am overwhelmed by your success. And grinning from ear to ear. You are fascinating me. 🙂

    • You are precious, George…and too kind…but I thank you anyway. 🙂

  10. A fairy tale castle brought to earth.

  11. Clouds can add so much to an image. Makes it look like a painting.

    • They certainly can, Leanne…and this one does have a bit of a “painterly” feel to it, doesn’t it…?

  12. It’s a beautiful building!
    I used to work right in downtown SLC on the 17th floor of a building just across the street, south of the temple. I’m not sure what the name of the building is now. The views we had were great (this was before all the new construction started)!

    • It’s an eye-catcher, Fergiemoto…my attention is constantly being drawn to it whenever I’m near. I’ll bet you had some beautiful views from the 17th floor in downtown SLC…. That would be nice to have an opportunity like that…..
