A walk around the Giant's Causeway in Country Antrim, Northern Ireland. Images 1 to 13 were taken in February 2009 on an overcast and peaceful day, the remaining images were taken on a very blustery day in August 2005.
From the top of the cliffs looking towards the "organ pipes"
Looking towards the "Giant's Chimney".
The "Giant's Chimney", these rocks were exposed by the actions of the last ice-age, about 15 thousand years ago.
Water pooled between the basalt columns
In 2008, the Causeway had 750 thousand visitors. Today we had the place almost to ourselves...
The basalt columns from the top of the cliff (it's a long way down, about 90m...)
Different colours of the 38,000 basalt columns. These are the oldest rocks at the Causeway, around 60 million years.
The "Giant's Boot".
If Finn MacCool is still looking for his boot, it's here...
Katherine starts her epic climb up the "organ pipes"...
There is some blue sky up there...
Debs negotiates her way around the rock fall on the path around the headland. The red rocks are made of volcanic Laterite.
Stop! End of the line... the cliffs are too unstable to go any further.
The Atlantic continues to batter the Causeway into submission.
38 thousand? OK, let's start again. 1, 2, 3, 4...
Close up of the taller columns.
Debs takes her life in her hands (and feet) on the columns.
View back towards the headland.
Pools of water on the worn down columns.
A brave man, about to get very wet...
