It's been some time since I've been out, so as Joe had pumped Marjorie's tyres up, I went out for a much needed spin.
Sunday morning is a good time to cycle, as although the main road looks quiet here, it can be busy, especially at harvest and holiday time.
Off the main road is quieter and takes me up to better views of the far off Shropshire hills. I startled a kestrel, which took flight over my head.
I had brought out art materials, in case I felt the urge to scribble, but the light was quite flat, which makes everything too muted for my taste, so I settled for snaps.
It was only a short spin, under two hours, what with my stopping every so often with the camera, but it was good to get out.
The clouds were right, and in the afternoon we had rain.
