This is my latest sunset shot from the Giant’s Causeway.
I’ve always had a keen interest in geology… think it comes from being hiked up and down the Causeway Coast by an enthusiastic geology teacher… never been the same since!
According to the National Trust – the organisation that cares for the feature – the Causeway started to take shape sixty million years ago during intense volcanic activity. The cliffs and shoreline are made up of around 38,000 basalt columns that stretch out to sea.
I’ve tried to capture this ‘otherworldly’ landscape of fire and water. It’s an ‘elemental’ landscape. I have only used Adobe Photoshop to clean-up and crop the image. It really was as you see it!
I’ve called the photograph the ‘The Causeway Crucible‘.
I captured the shot with John – a keen photographer who was visiting Ireland from Connecticut, USA.
John and I had a great evening capturing huge waves, sea mists and an amazing sunset not to mention discovering one of the latest film set locations of the HBO TV series ‘Game of Thrones’. The series is an amazing medieval fantasy and it is filmed here in County’s Antrim and Down.
