Artist's Description

This was taken as the sun was getting lower on the horizon and the photo came out as a silhouette against the evening sun.

(A little history if you are interested)
The Salt Palace convention center is in Salt Lake City, UT , USA
The first Salt Palace in Utah was built in 1899, but was destroyed by fire in 1910. At the current location, an indoor arena called the Salt Palace was completed in 1969 and served as the home to several professional sports teams while hosting concerts and other events. In 1994 the arena was demolished and a convention center was built in its place. Two expansions to that building, in 2000 and 2005, increased its size to 679,000 square feet.

Many of the convention center’s most striking visual features were obtained through the creative use of hollow structural steel in exposed applications. The entrance towers, delicate snowflake chandeliers, and grand five-story main concourse make the Salt Palace part architectural showpiece, part modern art sculpture, and ready to be all business.
