A Most Rare Vision

Shropshire from the Air

Over a period of two years, Mark Sisson and the Reverend Henry Morris have met up at short notice, weather permitting, to fly from Halfpenny Green airfield over different parts of Shropshire.

Angling the small Socata aircraft at 45 degrees, vicar Henry has put Mark in the right position to photograph the county’s network of canals, rivers, ridges, hills and valleys, patchworks of crops, quarries, monuments, towns, hill forts, racecourses, golfcourses, parkland and settlements.

Their adventure has taken them to the four corners of Shropshire, looking down on Shrewsbury, Ludlow, Much Wenlock, Church Stretton, Telford, Bridgnorth, Bishop’s Castle, Newport, Clun and many more villages and hamlets.

In A Most Rare Vision, Mark has managed to capture the surprises and the beauty of Shropshire from the air.
