Photographer's Note

The Giant's Causeway, an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic fissure eruption.

A World Heritage Site promoted by UNESCO in 1986.

The tops of the columns form stepping stones that lead from the cliff foot and disappear under the sea. Most of the columns are hexagonal, although there are some with four, five, seven or eight sides.

The tallest are about 12 metres (39ft) high, and the solidified lava in the cliffs is 28 metres (92ft) thick in places.

Two more pictures in the workshop.

The weather did not help on the day of our visit, it was very overcast and grey, not ideal for photography.

Nature really is the best designer!
Thanks for looking.
