Where the light shines through

It hardly needs to be said that Yale’s architecture is gorgeous. Our campus is full of ornate buildings that range from Gothic to ultramodern. There’s so much to appreciate about these spaces that even 4 years of school aren’t enough time to take it all in. 

One element of our buildings I’ve been appreciating a lot lately is how they interact with sunlight. Particularly at sunset and sunrise, they are awash in a magical glow. The striking visuals make me feel at peace and ultimately so grateful to be here, even in the most stressful of times. Below are some of my favorite golden hour photos of Yale. They don’t quite do the real thing justice, but you’ll get the idea, and hopefully be inspired enough to come see it for yourself :)
