Season’s Greetings 2010-11 | Oxford snow

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, whatever form you’d like to take the greetings in …

It’s a cold and snowy Oxford this year, and the first I can remember with such an extensive fall of snow lying on the day itself. This picture was taken last Sunday at South Park, on a small hill that overlooks the city centre. Lots of people go sledging here either using professional equipment or improvised sledges from the lids of recycling boxes. It was a gorgeous day with some lovely light.
