During the day we laughed at the suggestion that it might snow, sitting in the warm office looking out at sunny skies. Even getting into the car to go home, it was cold but clear (if a little dark at 6pm). On the five minute journey to my flat however, we went from clear, to thundery, to the first stinging flakes of ice as I put my key into the door. By the time I'd got rid of coat, bag and keys there was a tapping sound at the window, and outside was covered in a thin layer over white.

I put some food in the microwave, but decided that grabbing my camera and taking some photos was more appealing that microwaved pizza. Before it got too bad...

Chichester is not a big place. By the end of my road I was covered in snow, so thick I had to scrape it off my jacket. By the time I got to the far end of the cathedral, it had stopped. The "storm" lasted about half an hour, but was enough to slide my boss's car off the road after he'd dropped me off. Luckily it was only at 15mph. It still put him into oncoming traffic and scared the daylights out of him though.

Due to the cold, wind, lack of light, snow on various bits of the camera and so on, some pics aren't great; but they show a bit of atmosphere.

A bit of shelter under the Cross. I was going for arty framing but the flash was too harsh. It did speed the camera up however, so at least it isn't wobbly.

My hands were so cold and shaky by this point that I was holding the camera with both hands, and covered the flash...

You see the strangest things when you're out at night in the snow. Like this couple out for a walk - with their ferret on a lead.

The last one wasn't very light even with the flash (probably because I still had the camera speed turned up), so here's a lighter version.

I thought it might be nice to try some gamma- and colour-correction to the first snow-covered angel, which was taken with just street lighting. However, the colour correction process was so laborious that I ended up greyscaling the image and applying my own sepia-style palette.
