Photographer's Note

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.
