During the lockdown we were allowed out each day for some exercise.  So to get fit I went for lots of cycle rides around the Somerset Levels.  The moors and levels were looking beautiful this spring.  As the nation passed the peak we were allowed out more often.  Now I could go out and cycle with my camera.

Setting off early in the morning reduced the chances of meeting other people and was perfect for that golden light.
