Heath Commons

heath commons

Sometimes I am just amazed at what a beautiful campus it is at the school where I am teaching. In the Commons, one looks out at a panoramic view of West Rock, East Rock, all the buildings of downtown New Haven, and over to a little sliver of Long Island Sound. All this in the late afternoon light that makes everything so dramatic. That light has a name, I recently found out, alpenglow:

  1. the rosy light of the setting or rising sun seen on high mountains.
