Giant's Causeway

By flowerpower59
Another "must see" on our tour of Ireland, though to be honest, I was a bit underwhelmed by this famous spot. It was much smaller than in my imagination. We were there quite late in the day when most of the tourists had left, so that was a bonus, but the light was pretty awful. Can't have everything.

"Quite small". I do not think you explored it all, the whole Giant's Causeway experience covers a huge area.

You may have missed quite a bit of it I think. A World Heritage Site, with more than 40,000 interlocking hexagonal (and others) bocks and columns, up to 12 meters high.

Needs a rotation and a bit of contrast.

Willie's got in ahead of me, a slight rotation needed.
I do like the cold bleakness. But then I like bleak...

I agree with you being underwhelmed...although there are some great walks and views...the core area has little to keep you there, especially at high tide. Smile

Would make a nice rockery - good presentation.

I guess I must have been there at high tide , as I too was underwhelmed, although the views on the way down and the surrounding coastline were beautiful . You were lucky with not being plagued by tourist though as they were crawling over the rocks like ants during my visit. I think a very decent shot considering the weather
