Still from my trip to South Korea in 2008, the Jusangjeolli cliff is a spectacular volcanic rock formation at the southern coast of Jeju Island, and it is one of the top tourist destinations on the island. These basalt formations look like pillars and columns and are remnants of volcanic activity. What is so impressive about these rock formations is that they are perfectly hexagonal for the most part, almost appearing handmade. These cliffs were created between 250,000 and 140,000 years ago, when Hallasan was still an active volcano.

These basaltic columns are similar to the more famous cousins in Ireland. Like the contrast between the dark rocks & the almost transparent blue water

Ces formations géologiques volcaniques sont vraiment très impressionnantes et originales et donnent un aspect très particulier à cette côte.

Very impressive cliff and excellent quality photo, it is not an easy shot with the gray and black cliff. This POV make me feel a bit uneasy due to the height. Good composition and the presence of the boat really give a good idea of the size. I wish the hill was not cut off at the top.

Hello dear Ricardo
Such fascinating coastline, which reminds me alot of the coastline along Antrim in Northern Ireland, the Giants Causeway. Excellent Point of View, colours and sharpness. Nice work.

Dobar tekst sa datim podacima ...
Lep pogled na stare stubove od vulkanske lave, more i planine u daljini, dobra kompozicija.
Dobra ostrina snimka, kontrast i prikaz lepim bojama.
Imajte lep dan za odmor, sve najbolje sa lepim secanjem na posetu mestu.
Bom texto com os dados fornecidos ...
Bela vista dos pilares antigos de lava vulcânica, o mar e as montanhas ao longe, uma boa composição.
Nitidez da imagem, contraste e visualização de belas cores.
Tenha um bom dia de descanso, tudo de bom com belas lembranças da visita ao local.

You're capturing well both of the coast line and cliff by a good angle and excellent tone, so it's interesting and impressive to see the cliff with unique shape. And, it's harmonized with blue sea in the point of color balance. The peninsula which is visible in the distance and mountain draw out additional good atmosphere.

las formas de estos acantilados de basalto son asombrosas, y dan un fuerte grafismo a la imagen, que se complementa con la belleza del paisaje costero que nos ofrece tu buena composición.
Buscaste un encuadre muy eficaz para incluir todos esos elementos, en una imagen limpia y con buen colorido.

Quite by accident I found a museum with replicas of the terra cotta warriors, located just above the waterfall in Seogwipo. You had good weather & lighting to capture these hexagonal basaltic columns, which were close by! Tfs! Btw there is a similar formation at Fingal in NSW, and Halla-san volcano is dormant. It last erupted 800 years ago.

very particular conformation of these rocks, very clear is lava rock almost to its color, very nice even the sea, excellent colors and good framing...
my best regards,
ourania (31949) 2012-04-15 12:12
your point of view is great and it outlines excellently the unique features of this rock formation and the way it stands out in its environment. You managed the light very well to capture the natural colours, textures and mood of this place and have acheived great clarity and depth as well. Thank you for this lovely and very interesting photo!
All the best, have a great week,

A very curious place.
Good frame and colors.

Very nice striking captured of interesting rockies at the side of sea. Good perspective from eagle's point of view shot to get depth of field and well light management to obtain sharpbess and clarity.
Thanks,regards, have a good week

The distance between the cliff sand the opposite shore is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Jusangjeolli cliff. The quality of the light is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.

fascinating the view of the Jusangjeolli cliff with the specific shapes of its structure to make it an eye catching of the area.I like the good presentation,the clarity of the image as the lot of the details we can see.

Ola Ricardo ,
I love coastal landscapes . Ans this one is really interesting . These grey rocky formations are fantastic . Just a little detail : it seems to me that it would have been better if you hade not cut the top of the hill in the BG .
siolaw (38284) 2012-04-18 7:59
A spectacular set of rock formations with quite incredible shapes.
Sharpness and colours are great, maybe framing is a bit short on top?
lakshmip1949 (19081) 2012-04-18 17:49
A very impressive and beautiful shot shoing the basalt formations. I like the color contrast between the black rocks and blue water. Details are captured very nicely with good light management.
macjake (57062) 2012-04-21 14:40
we dont get to see too many South Korean photo's here on Te, so this one is a welcome sight for sure.
a beautiful volcanic rock formation, mother nature at her best.
I like that we can also see them below the actual water surface.
gunbud (34066) 2012-06-10 17:47
These richly textured old cliffs are beautifully seen in this rich light.
The old gray walls contrast wonderfully with the turquoise of the sea.
