View up a slight incline of the cycle path along my direction of travel. Further along here the path loops around to the right, but I will be going along a grassy path before that off to the right, taking a slightly shorter route but parallel to the cycle track.
A few more gnarly and interesting looking trees caught my attention along the way. This one in silhouette against the sun shining through the trees.
A magnificent beech tree stands at the end of this grassy path.
The grassy path rejoins the cycle path again and a small footbridge is coming into view on the right (my intended direction of travel still going clockwise.)
