Photographed at 6.31 am on the 21st March 2018. The sun is just rising over the eastern horizon beyond the water meadows that surround the River Corve. It is a wonderful sight as the rays of the Sun bring hope and brightness. It is a real privilege to live in this beautiful English countryside.

Photographed on February 25th 2018 by Anthony J Sargeant these old trees twist and turn out of the ground that banks away from the Shropshire lane close to his home. It is almost Spring but still the wind is cold and the trees starkly bare in the winter sunshine.

Barkworths in the indoor market at Shrewsbury, Shropshire, England, are one of the very best fishmongers that Anthony Sargeant has found – superb fresh fish well looked after.

Ancient Oak Tree in Shropshire, England

IMG_4916

This ancient oak stands at the T junction of two lanes just a little way from the Shropshire home of Anthony Sargeant. The lanes around this part of Shropshire are punctuated with old Oak trees. From time to time in high winds branches will break off but otherwise they stand solid and naturally gaunt. Just about to burst into new growth as the leaf buds open in mid-April. (yesterday when this photograph was taken it was Easter Saturday – 15th April 2017)
