Eye in the sky snaps Nottingham in the snow
A PHOTOGRAPHER used a miniature helicopter to take a panoramic picture of Nottingham in the snow.
Chris Wilkinson took the photo 100 metres above Mapperley Park, looking south, on Tuesday morning.
Mr Wilkinson, 33, of Mapperley Park, said: "It was a clear morning and there was just a small window of sunshine before it clouded over.
"Because of the cold the flight time was reduced to five minutes. I didn't have long to get the shot."

Mr Wilkinson, who runs Upper Cut Productions, used a Canon 5D Mk III camera to take the photograph.
He added: "You don't really get to see the city like this very often. I love the way the sun bursts over the city, silhouetting some of the main landmarks."
The picture is the latest panoramic image captured on Chris's camera.
Last year he took panoramic shots in the Old Market Square during the Queen's Diamond Jubilee visit and Olympic Torch Relay celebrations.
The Met Office is warning of more fresh snow today.
The organisation is predicting that between 4cm to 8cm of fresh snow could fall in Nottingham.
Temperatures will be around -4°C during the morning rush-hour, with snow forecast at 9am.
Further snowfall is expected throughout the day.
