Giants Causeway

By hwatt  
Uttakliev, Lofoten, Norway

With its giant polished and rounded black boulders Uttakliev's beach proves an irresistible draw. I found myself having to balance myself rather precariously between three massive boulders with sea swirling between in order to ensure both proximity to the moving surf and a guarantee that the rocks themselves would be wet enough to enhance the gold rim lighting I could see as the last vestiges of the setting sun reflected off the curved edge of the stones. The mix of colours was simply beautiful.

Another stunning shot.....

An amazing foreground and backdrop....

Of course there's another Giants Causeway much closer to home you really must visit, here in Co.Antrim and maybe even another gallery opportunity for your website.

You'd be more than welcome IanSmile

Thank you. The Giants Causeway in Co. Antrim is the inspiration for the title of this photograph. The boulders are gigantic here and you would need to be a giant to get about on them. This beach is Uttakliev in Lofoten islands. One day I will visit the one across the Irish sea.
