Photographer's Note

This was my second trip to see the remains of the Hadrian’s Wall. This time I wanted to hike to one of the most iconic spots along the wall which is called the Sycamore Gap. It is famous for being featured in the Robin Hood movie (1991) with Kevin Costner.
The most important was to find a reasonably located parking spot. Steel Rigg Cark Park appeared to be very convenient.
The forecast announced a spotless sky and no wind but it was not the case. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the beauty of this place and I am definitely coming back there soon hoping to have a better light next time.

Hadrian's Wall (Latin: Vallum Aelium), also called the Roman Wall, Picts' Wall, or Vallum Hadriani in Latin, was a defensive fortification in the Roman province of Britannia, begun in AD 122 in the reign of the emperor Hadrian. It ran from the banks of the River Tyne near the North Sea to the Solway Firth on the Irish Sea, and was the northern limit of the Roman Empire, immediately north of which were the lands of the northern Ancient Britons, including the Picts.
