But before everything turns green, I wanted to capture some images of the campus near dusk at this time of the year. The long beams of winter light break through the bare tree limbs, casting spiderweb patterns on the Gothic buildings of this strikingly gorgeous campus.

Inside the Princeton Chapel, sunbeams through stained glass cast rainbows on the stone columns and arches.
