Magical view as sun rises over Shropshire

A magical sunrise over Shropshire - this was my view from the slopes of Titterstone Clee.

Magical view as sun rises over Shropshire

Somewhere beneath the mist is the market town of Cleobury Mortimer, with the Wyre Forest and the Black Country beyond.

I saw the sheep from a distance and hurried over as I wanted to get a picture of them positioned on opposite sides of the hill with the sun in between.

They were very wary of me, but I managed to grab my shot before they ran away and disappeared into the mist.

Titterstone isn’t the highest summit in Shropshire - that accolade goes to its neighbour, Brown Clee - but it is the only named hill shown on the Mappa Mundi.

This is the 13th century map of the known world which is preserved in the Chained Library at Hereford Cathedral. 

It is drawn on a single sheet of vellum and reflects the medieval church with Jerusalem at the centre of the world.
