Standing on top of the basalts columns a tourist watches the sun go down as the atlantic waves crash into the volcanic rocks around him. Under these conditions the giant causeway really is a special place and one of the must see of the natural world. In the 18th century The Giants Causeway was described as ‘The Eighth Wonder Of The World’. The area consists of an estimated 40,000 hexagonal basalt columns, which were formed during a volcano eruption 60 million years ago.

This is an amazing shot! The long exposure creates a nice effect with the moving water. The light management is fantastic here. Simply an amazing photo!

All the elements of superb photographic art have collaborated here — the composition, light management, exposure, and the scene itself. Absolutely first rate. I've seen so many photos of the rugged Northern Ireland Coast, and this is among the 2-3.

lovely contrasts between the warm and cold tones inthe pictures. The vertical format brings a lot of depth. I like the addition of the tourist even though he's hard to make out...
