Dawn this morning in Shropshire photographed by Anthony J Sargeant

Dawn seen from the bedroom window of Tony’s Shropshire (UK) home at 6.24 am on 8th August 2016. The night mist still clings to the water meadows surrounding the River Corve just below the house. Wonderful morning but soon it is a harbinger for the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness which will soon be upon us once again.

Lemon Sole – a superb flat fish

IMG_3643

Supper last night cooked by Anthony J Sargeant was lemon sole bought at Birmingham’s Indoor Bullring Market. A fabulously plump lemon sole caught by Cornish day boat. It really is one of the best flat fish. Filleted by Tony it was pan fried skin side down then flipped for the last few minutes. The thick skin then peeled off and the fillets served with a shrimp sauce and potato salad.

Live Brown Crab

IMG_3412

Live Brown Crab waiting to be cooked and picked by Anthony Sargeant. Highly recommmended by Tony who prefers the taste to lobster. This one is a male. It has larger claws and hence more white meat but lacks the brown meat of the female. This one was bought live from ‘Pearce’s Shellfish’ in Birmingham’s (UK) Indoor Bullring Market. Pearce’s are also highly recommended as a reliable source of shellfish – I believe that they have been in the market for 4 generations,

Washing an Antique Heriz Carpet

IMG_3531

Anthony Sargeant is seen here washing an antique Heriz Carpet. Bought at auction in The Netherlands over 20 years ago it had remained rolled up in storage ever since. A weather forecast last month of hot sunny days finally gave Tony the opportunity to wash the carpet in the garden of his Shropshire home.

Anthony J Sargeant took this photograph of a sensational sunset from the garden of his Shropshire home. The house lies in the Corvedale Valley and this photograph was taken at 21.11 hrs on the 2nd August 2016 looking towards Wenlock Edge. A moment of transient and impressive wonder in the beautiful English countryside of Shropshire.
