[🇺🇦⬇️] “God knows that giants don’t like their feet wet so he build a giant’s causeway to Scotland”
Giant’s Causeway is Northern Ireland’s most popular attraction and an incredible natural sight that is part of UNESCO heritage.
These hexagon-shaped basalt rocks under my feet are made by nature alone, a remains of volcano eruption 🌋 (alternative version is that they have been made by giants, of course 😜)
"Бог знає, що велетні не люблять мочити ноги, тому він збудував для них доріжку через греблю до Шотландії"
Доріжка Гігантів - найпопулярніша визначна пам'ятка Північної Ірландії та неймовірне природне видовище, яке є частиною спадщини ЮНЕСКО. А ще вона окутана міфами та легендами про велетнів, які збудували цю доріжку, щоб переступати між Шотландію та Ірландією.
Ці базальтові скелі у формі шестикутника під моїми ногами зроблені самою природою, як залишки виверження вулкана 🌋 (ну, або ж велетнями, в залежності від того, в що ви хочете вірити). 😜
A short film made around sunset yesterday from the car park at the hotel. This morning is typically cloudy and rainy but it is supposed to clear a bit this afternoon. I’ll go see the rocks then. For the time being I will reconnoiter the nearby town of Portrush for some better places to eat supper. The food at the hotel is...well, I have had better food at a cafeteria. #giantscauseway#giantscausewayireland
The Giant's Causeway is an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic fissure eruption. It is located in County Antrim on the north coast of Northern Ireland, about three miles northeast of the town of Bushmills
I left Ireland today. So many amazing places to see, I need to go back and spend more time there!!! The most beautiful shots are on my camera, and I won't be able to share them until I get home to a computer. But thought I'd share a couple from my phone, not that they can do justice to such a beautiful place! 🇨🇮☘❤
Legend says it was built by giants. Science says it is the result of volcanic fissure eruption. Either way, it created an amazing formation of rocks in hexagonal shaped pattern that lead from the cliff foot and disappear under the sea.. It is an UNESCO Heritage site and the fourth greatest natural wonder in the UK.

It helps when you image the final photograph in your head. Look at your surroundings, and try to figure how it would finally look as a photo; investigate the scene, the good and the bad aspects of it. Then, think of the best possible version of that picture, and figure out how to get it.
Imagining it is the easiest part, you just have to pinpoint the emotion you try to convey. The challenge is making it a reality; matching your final photo to the final image you have in mind.
In this picture I imagen more light hitting the subject, or maybe some fog covering a bit of the hill, and none on the man, and since I was on tight tourist bus schedule I had to make my peace with this one. But, if I had have the chance, I would have stayed as long as possible to achieve what I had in mind.
The giants causeway has many myths and legends around it however it is thought that these amazing rock formations are the result of volcanic rock cooling and cracking.
This photo was taken on a very windy day in northern ireland and there will be many more simailar photos in the near future.
