This 3D photo of Hadrian’s Cycle-way was captured close to my home, in the village of Moor Row. The cycling route passes through some of England’s most dramatic and wild countryside, taking in magnificent coastal views, breathtaking countryside and Roman forts.

The cycle-way is named after Roman Emperor, Hadrian. In AD122, Hadrian had a defensive wall built across the north of England to separate the Romans from invading Scottish barbarians.
The route runs mainly on country lanes and quiet roads, interspersed with sections of traffic-free path, promenade and riverside path. As most of the route is either on minor roads or well surfaced off-road tracks most bikes are suitable. The coastal sections at either end of the route are relatively flat, but there are a few steep, short hills in the central section. Most people are able to complete the route in 3 days, but for those wanting to stop at the numerous attractions along the way it is likely to take 4-5 days.
*Anaglyph 3D is the name given to the stereoscopic 3D effect achieved by means of encoding each eye’s image using filters of different (usually chromatically opposite) colours, typically red and cyan. Anaglyph 3D images contain two differently filtered coloured images, one for each eye. When viewed through the “colour-coded” “anaglyph glasses”, each of the two images reaches the eye it’s intended for, revealing an integrated stereoscopic image. The visual cortex of the brain fuses this into the perception of a three-dimensional scene or composition.
