Manti Temple pictures by Dane Shakespeare

Historic Architecture

The LDS Manti Temple in Manti, UT after a rainstorm. After doing a shoot for a client in Salt Lake City, I decided to take the scenic back roads to St. George (the long way) and was lucky enough to get a shot of this beautiful structure built in 1888.  Interestingly enough, the picture was...

A Test of the Big Canon Lenses

After using a Canon 300mm f/2.8 prime for sports action shots, I wanted to see what a 400mm f/2.8 prime performed like on the field.  Often you get in spots that you wished you had a little more reach. I had the chance to give the 400mm a try for a game I was trying...

Rain On the Rocks

Sometimes you just don’t notice features of a landscape until something happens to show you a new angle.  This image was taken just after a rainfall on a road I drive by ever day.  This day, I noticed, stopped and took some shots.
