Here are a few rare and privileged sights of St. George’s Chapel in this morning’s snow.

This is the nave, as seen from King Henry VIII Gate:

And this is a closer view of the south quire:

For some reason, square Christmas cards are very popular in Britain—much more so than in California—and I find the angles on display in this block shape attractive, especially as they benefit from today’s pure white snow highlights.

Also, the chapel looks striking this morning in black and white!
