FIRE AT THE WALL

Location: Hadrian's Wall, Northumberland, UK


Spanning 73 miles from Wallsend to Bowness-on-Solway, Hadrian's Wall is arguably the most spectacular remnant of the Roman Empire in Britain. It took around 15,000 men six years to the wall. What you see in this image is only 10% of original height.


This photo was taken near Milecastle 39 at Hadrian's Wall looking east towards Housesteads. The composition was fairly simply, I wanted the wall to be the main component by using it as the leading line to take you towards the enticing sunset.
