Photographed by Anthony J Sargeant from the bedroom window of his Shropshire home at 4.20 pm in the afternoon of the 29th January 2018. The view is to the east with the sun low on the horizon behind the photographer only just catching the edge of the water meadows around the River Corve and the trees on the low escarpment beyond. The almost full moon is visible in the late afternoon sky.

Anthony J Sargeant took this photograph of the sunrise seen from a bedroom window of his Shropshire home at 7.48 hr on the 30th January 2018. Through the delicate winter tracery of the deciduous trees the sun is about to burst forth above the Brown Clee hill in the distance.

After the snowfall of the 8th December 2017 (see previous post) this was the scene the next day photographed by Tony Sargeant from the bedroom window of his 17th Century Shropshire cottage. The view this time is towards the east looking across the water meadows that surround the River Corve. A glorious day with blue skies and sun.

Tony Sargeant took this photograph on 8th December 2017 from a bedroom window of his Shropshire, England home looking South-West up the garden towards the sheep pastures that surround the house. It was a very heavy and early snowfall and it was impossible to get out of the lane for 5 days by car. It is a very small narrow country lane to the house that does not get gritted and after the mound on which the house sits there are uphill sections of the lane in both directions. So ‘imprisoned’ – but what a prison! (see the next post when the sun came out with blue skies)

Anthony Sargeant went for a walk around the grounds of Stowe on the 22nd December 2016 with his friend Trish. It was a beautiful clear crisp winter’s day and the magnificent Capability Brown grounds made for an invigorating walk. Here the view is back up towards the house but inside the deep HaHa.

Ancient Yew Tree on Wenlock Edge

Standard

This ancient Yew tree was photographed by Anthony Sargeant just off the foot path that runs along the top of Wenlock Edge in Shropshire, England. It has a diameter in excess of two metres and must have grown undisturbed in its remote location for hundreds if not thousands of years.

November Sunset from my Shropshire home

Standard

Anthony Sargeant photographed this sunset from his Shropshire home on the 3rd November 2016 looking west across the sheep fields that surround the house. It was a quiet and clear night. The result of clear skies and a breeze from the north east was the first serious frost of the winter.
