Me, in Northumberland - Taken 11th July 2006, at the Roman wall - built in 122 AD by Emperor Hadrian, to keep out the Picts. The wall used to stretch the full 73 miles.

The bricks behind me, were laid 1900 years ago (probably by my enslaved Celtic ancestors!).

I do like the sense of wide open space in this shot. I've never been to Hadrian's Wall, although I hope to sometime soon. My father keeps bugging me by telling how bloody amazing it is! I need to see it for myself.!
