This is my attempt to capture a difficult picture. It is was completely dark outside and the Christus statue inside the visitor's center is lit up. I did a 3 shot HDR (+/- 2). The exposure was so long that I thought the camera may have malfunctioned on the third shot.
The lights you see on the left side are used to light up the manger scene during the nativity presentation. Again, if you haven't been to Temple Square in SLC at Christmas time you should put it on your list of things to do.
