Hadrian's Wall was built by the Romans, partly to keep the barbarians out and partly to keep the troops guarding the northern edge of the Empire busy. Stretching coast to coast for 74 miles (in its day), the wall was garrisoned by 20,000 troops.

I think you cropped me out of that Loch Ness photo. Jerk. :)

Otherwise, I love this page.

Awesome work! Looks great! I'm going to have to take out my lesser camera attached to my far less skills at photography and at least try to show something of my MUCH SMALLER slice of the world here in Oki (JP-not the state). Great work as always. Please post more!

Brandon,
It is always such a joy for me to see the work you do, the places you've gone, and the way you present your life to others. What fantastic photos. Keep the blogging going.

Brandon,
I'm so glad I finally get to look at these pics. Our pic party never worked out. This is understandable when we look back at our very eventful last few years,most especially yours. These pictures are amazing. They could honestly be in a published art or pic book. I hope no one steals them...they are so good I wouldn't be surprised if they ended up on some other site. What kind of camera did you use? Such clarity. Thanks for sharing these whith us.
Brandan V.

Your photos are great, but Ireland is not part of the United Kingdom, it should have it's own heading.
