Anthony Sargeant took this photograph from the bedroom window of his Shropshire home. The English countryside can be especially beautiful on clear winter days when the bare branches of the deciduous trees give a translucency to the landscape. The water meadows around the River Corve had been flooded the previous day and in the night left sheets of frozen ice.

Making its way through the early morning mist cloaking the sea loch at Ullapool in Scotland this boat is returning with its catch. Photographed in 1976 by Anthony Sargeant while on an extended holiday along the West Coast of Scotland. It is a very traditional clinker built small fishing vessels of which there used to be thousands around the UK coast.

Flooded fields in Shropshire

This photograph was taken looking south from the B4368 road at Broadstone, in Shropshire, England, by Anthony Sargeant. In the background are the Clee Hills with The Brown Clee to the left. In the immediate foreground can just be seen the River Corve as it winds its way along the river valley. The fields beyond the river have flooded after heavy rain the night before. The ancient system of strip farming long since abandoned has nevertheless marked the landscape leaving what in dry weather are imperceptible ridges but these become apparent when the flood water lies in the strips once ploughed and sowed with crops alternating strip by strip and year by year.

Ancient Yew Tree on Wenlock Edge

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. via Ancient Yew Tree on Wenlock […]

November Sunset from my Shropshire home

Standard

Anthony Sargeant photographed this sunset from his Shropshire home at 18.00 hrs 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.

Summer Sunrise Photographed from my Bedroom window in Shropshire

2015_0731reading0002-31-july-2015-at-5-17-am-from-bedroom-window

This photograph was taken from the bedroom window of my Shropshire (UK) home at 5.17am on the 31st July 2015. I am fortunate to live in such a beautiful and unspoilt area of outstanding natural beauty. There are often sensational sunrises and sunsets as the house is in the valley of the River Corve. This is looking east up the valley while the sun sets at the end of the day over the hills that comprise Wenlock Edge.
