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.

Suddenly the snowdrops have burst into flower along the lanes and byways of Shropshire in England. Great drifts of them cloak every likely bank along the roads although this clump was photographed by Anthony J Sargeant in the garden of his Shropshire home on the 29th January 2018. There is a local story that there was a man who in the 19th Century, or early 20th used to roam the lanes in the area planting bulbs in the hedgerows.

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.
