Hadrian wall, Northumberland

Hadrian wall, Northumberland

The Roman emperor Hadrian had this wall built just under 2000 years ago to keep out marauding Celts. It was the Northern limit of the Roman empire. The Sycamore tree, just under 100 years old, makes this one of the most beautiful compositions anywhere. On this Summers evening I was the only marauding Celt around; I waited until the sun dipped into the little undulation, tripped the shutter, and the following day retreated back to Scotland!
