Featured Photograph of the Week

This week's feature was taken by Safra Bacchus, a Junior at the University at Buffalo studying Biology, taken on a brisk morning in Fall.

"I was on a wildlife refuge two years ago as a part of a class assignment. As I was roaming through the trees watching for small creatures there was the sky above looking so enticing. It felt like being in a movie; the final moment where the sun peeks through the trees. shining on my face, as if to symbolize hope for the future. I just had to capture it."

If you have taken a photograph that you think should be featured, please send it in with a description of the shot, and a short bio of yourself to
