Oxford from on High


"I was lucky enough to be given a Balloon trip for a present. We passed over the centre of Oxford and were privileged to get a really special view of this historic city. This picture shows the mid-eighteenth century Radcliffe Camera, now used as a reading room for the Bodleian Library. In the foreground to the right is the University Church. The Camera sits in the centre of Radcliffe Square with Colleges of the University to the left and right. A Red bus going down the High is just visible". Taken by Michael

::a most incredible birdlike perspective that makes you wonder if the majesty of the City was almost designed to be truly seen from above??:::beauty:::

Wonderful shot of such a beautiful city.
I would be worried the balloon might bump into one of those spires!!!
