Heat is back in NC! We have reached 81F these days; people are wearing flip flops, shorts and thin t-shirts, and others, like my roommate’s boyfriend, even have fans close at hand.
Clear skies are back as well! Compared to last week’s grey skies, nowadays sun shines, cumulus and rain are gone, and just some scattered cirrus are floating up in the air. As a consequence, a beautiful light has been illuminating Durham this week, which is the perfect excuse to take pictures of one of the most symbolic places here at Duke: the Chapel.
This gothic-styled chapel was built between 1930 and 1932 but finished just in 1935. Its height (210 feet) make me think that in a lot of places all over the world it would be considered almost as a cathedral!
We usually see this type of long shot when googling the chapel, but what about a low angle of the bell tower this time?
On Thursday att 6:30 pm. I was wandering around the chapel and saw how the oblique sunlight marvelously highlighted the rear view of the chapel while the trees were covered by the shade producing a magical contrast between the chapel and its surroundings. Beautiful, right? Thankfully I had my camera in my bag and documented this amazing moment!
