- The amateur photographer expected to use his iPhone 6 to snap a shot of the River Severn's local kingfisher
- When he got home he realised the reflection of the trees in the river actually looked like a Viking God
A photographer couldn't believe his eyes when he took a picture of some weeping willows by a river and saw they looked like the massive green head of a Viking God.
Firefighter Lee Roberts, 35, had intended to frame the perfect shot of willows weeping into the River Severn near his house above the weir in Castlefields, Shrewsbury.
But when he got home he realised the reflection of the trees in the river actually looked like a Viking God.

He said: 'This shot was taken using the panoramic setting on my iPhone 6. I was waiting to see the local kingfisher.
'I only noticed the Viking face when I was walking back to my house as I looked through the pictures. I've posted it on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook and it's had a fantastic reaction.
Can you see the Viking God? Mr Roberts, pictured right, was just an avid wildlife fan on the lookout for the River Severn's local kingfisher. But when he flipped one of his images vertically, he saw something right out of Norse mythology, pictured right
'I'm a keen amateur photographer and I love taking pictures of wildlife in my home town and of the buildings and people in and around Shrewsbury.
'I've lived here all my life and work as a firefighter in the town so I find photography a good way to unwind. I'm married with a young son Marlowe, who I love taking for walks and showing the local wildlife.'
