For the first-ever photo contest sponsored by the Office of Public Affairs & Communications, we asked for your best shots of Yale scenes, and what you captured is visual poetry. Here — in descending order — are the top photo submissions from Yale students, staff and community members, whose images range from scenes of the campus in snow to aerial views of the campus at night, to a shot of a youngster's delight during a visit to the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History.
