Hadrian’s Wall was the most heavily fortified border in the Roman Empire, and dates from AD 122, during the rule of the emperor Hadrian. It was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. The best preserved remains of the wall are situated along a conspicuous geological feature known as the Whin Sill, a tabular layer of  igneous dolerite rock in the north east of England. Housesteads Crags, close to the famous Housesteads Roman Fort, look spectacular on a fine winter’s day with snow lying.

The Cheviot (815m), an ancient extinct volcano, is the highest point in the Cheviot Hills and the wild moors and uplands of Northumberland, which continue northwards across the Scottish border. The huge sweeping skies and far horizons, so typical of the Northumberland hills, can be well seen in this view from Battle Hill near Elsdon.

Mindful Moments

The Mindful Moments greeting card series now has twelve designs depicting nature subjects, with a mindfulness quote by Gwennie Fraser. As the subtitle of the card suggests, the theme is ‘reflections on mindfulness and nature’, and the quotes have been especially written to accompany each photograph. If the cards offer a little bit of helpful inspiration and contemplation, then they have achieved their aim. The images cover a wide range of subjects: an arctic tern in the Farne Islands; arctic willow in Greenland; raindrops on a beech leaf in spring; an ocean wave in Cornwall; crepuscular rays over the Hebrides; a detail of a tulip flower; a forget me not; gold and blue light on a waterfall in Northumberland National Park; a spectacular rainbow over Loch broom in the north west highlands of Scotland; a red squirrel; starry night over Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland International Dark Sky Park; and a detail of a stitchwort flower.
