Towpath can be dangerous for people who are on there bikes when its full of ruts.

Beautiful, peaceful, shot. In my experience, Mick, the nuts are usually ON the bikes.

A very nice Photo' Steve.

Parted now, the Summer's balm -
Inviting autumn airs;
Mellow tunes through oakwood, strewn,
While safe from gruesome pares.

The mirrored trees, by water calm,
Had seen the harvest carted
And now, perhaps - of daylong glow -,
Engaging hands, departed.

There's a feeling of The Haywain about this Steve,particularly with PG's line'Had seen the harvest carted'.
Autumn is made for photographers ,artists, musicians and poets.
I could walk that rutted track the whole day long.

John Morris, yes I agree with you.

Ah, but just think upon those ruts,
how many eyes, ears and noses, have appreciated Nature's given without cost. A fall in the cut or trip over the handle bars into the hedges, whilst eyeing a skylark, is not a journey lost.

Not forgetting a scarred knee,the same hue as a pitman's back! Believe me it's never faded after nearly 60 years!
