You may have guessed that a love snowdrops. They even distract me away from the starling roost at Ham Wall. So today I headed off to the tiny village of Nunney in Somerset.
The village has 2000 years of history, in comparison its castle is only 700 years old. Despite its short life it is very beautiful and very tall. It is so tall that is it really hard to photograph – you just cannot get far enough away.
Finally tucking back in the corner of the plot, and using a 16mm lens, I managed to get it all in.
All Saints Church
The church looks across a gap in a row of village houses towards the castle. Its very pretty inside, but I was obviously drawn to the snowdrops in the churchyard.
There is a six foot wall down to the road from the churchyard. I spent hours standing on an upturned plastic recycling box at the side of the road waiting for the best light to photograph the flowers at ground (head) level.
Once the low winter sun had come around the tower, and cleared the neighbouring buildings it provided some great backlighting for the snowdrops.
