AROUND THE MEADOW AT CHRIST CHURCH COLLEGE, OXFORD


My friend Richard and I walked the path around the meadow at Christ Church while I was in Oxford.


The buildings of the college are far in the distance.


As sunset approached, but before Mr Sun disappeared over the horizon, he gave us the wonderful display of color against the dark clouds.


The different appearance of the sky in the various pictures makes it hard even for me to believe that the photos were taken on the same walk.  In the center and to the right, the small brown speck is a deer.


A drainage canal beside the path around the meadow, which Richard said is, "...vitally needed because the land is immensely soggy, and otherwise the cows' hooves would rot....  It's a very damp place, Oxford."
