White out

We don't get this kind of snow very often in Oxford. And hardly ever on a weekend. So, despite the strong pull of my warm duvet nest, I managed to get myself out and about with my camera to explore the white winter wonderland. The first day of snowfall is always the prettiest, when it is completely untouched...but this time it was rather challenging to juggle my umbrella (to protect my camera from the heavy snow showers) as well as both my cameras and frozen fingers! So I'm afraid my composition is not as strong as it should be - but the scenery more than makes up for that I think. More photos on Flickr, as ever, in my Winter Wonderland set.
