This photo was taken right before sunset at the Giant’s Causeway on the Antrim Coast of Northern Ireland. It’s an incredible, otherworldly place that has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Tens of thousands of interlocking basalt columns rise up from the sea.
Legend has it that the Irish giant Finn MacCool built the causeway to Scotland to fight another giant. Similar columns exist across the sea on the coast of Scotland. More likely the columns are the result of a volcanic activity millions of years ago.
This is a heavily photographed place, so my goal was to find a different perspective. I found a small pool of water among the columns and got real low so the focus was on the columns and the reflection of the sky in the water. I tried several different compositions, but I liked this one best with the closer columns drawing your eye towards the horizon like a pathway.
