Winter chill

Winter has really descended here, just in time for Christmas. There's been a dusting of snow here, although nothing compared to other places in the UK. It's almost all gone now, but there's still an icy, frosty covering on the ground, which makes for a lovely wintery scene in photos.
I went to Port Meadow, a huge common on the outskirts of Oxford. Horses graze freely all over the meadow, and in winter the river often overflows, creating huge frozen lakes. Although it was pretty icy underfoot and I nearly came a cropper a few times, I got a few shots from the afternoon.
