A snowy night on Notre Dame Avenue

University photographer Matt Cashore captured this glorious image last Thursday night. "I was simply walking back to my car after an event and I liked how the street lights were back-lighting the snow," says Cashore. "Traffic was light enough that I could pause briefly in the crosswalk to take the photo. It was pure serendipity that there was another person in the next crosswalk to give the image a little human element." To order this photo or other recently-captured images taken on campus, visit the "most recent photos" tab at photos.nd.edu. You don't have to log in to see them and you can order a copy, starting at just $4.
