Through Darkest Sussex II

Something about this image reminds me of a colour plate illustration for some old-style adventure story, something illustrated by N.C. Wyeth but with a cyclist instead of pirates or highwaymen. A dense fog settled over the weald during the night, promting me to head up into the hills to see what adventurous scenes I could find. I captured this image along a serpentine stretch of lane near the ancient village of Guestling.
