This is the reconstructed West Gate of the Arbeia Roman Fort in South Shields (yes, we had settled here long before the Romans arrived). The fort was a supply base for Hadrian's Wall and is one of the largest and best preserved remains of a Roman Fort in the north of England.
Three shots to make the HDR in Photomatix then converted to black and white with Nik Silver Efex.
