Looking west from 200 feet up to see The Angel of the North with the A1 behind it.

This sculpture by Antony Gormley OBE has become the defining image of the north-east of England. It's 65 feet high and over 175 feet wide.

On that point, some argue that the sculpture is of a male figure. Not that it matters, it's still an amazingly spectacular piece of work.
