I spent most of yesterday writing code, right on up until about 9pm, which left me in no frame of mind to sleep, so I decided to go for a walk to clear my head.
I got a bit lost, following a road into a housing estate then on to various footpaths that crossed fields. The light was like this when I started:

The far side of the housing estate had a footpath that led on to a field:
I was beginning to think I was trespassing, or had taken a wrong turn, but this sign reassured me:
I headed towards the trees for lack of any better ideas.
Ok, can't go that way. And why are the words 'No Entry' smaller than the other text? Who can tell. Better go this way, then:
Footpaths must actually lead somewhere, right? Finally, at the end of the path was a gate, perpendicular to which was an actual paved road.
And eventually I found my way back to civilisation.
