I took this shot above the more traditional viewpoint of looking at the tree through the gap. I wanted to show the contours of the land on which Hadrian's Wall is built.

Beautiful light and original viewpoint make for a really interesting image. The wall takes your eye across the land very effectively. Well done!

A well chosen viewpoint to allow the eye to follow the wall as it snakes across the scene: and as you say the land contours on either side are so different, with arable cultivation to the left whilst on the right the hilly nature looks more suitable for sheep.

Ronnie thanks for you comments, If ever you go to Sycamore Gap the car park is at amongst the trees just below the higest hill on the image. Most people including me walk up & downthe gullies four times to reach the photo viewpoint I used..........on return to your car its much easier on yout knee joints to drop down to the tree then walk off to the right back to the carpark......much less strenuous on the knees which I'm sure the Romans discovered.

Best Regards,
Ian.

I really like the viewpoint you've chosen here as it allows the wall to pick out the undulations of the land. The light is beautiful and that dramatic sky tops it all off perfectly - a cracking image.
