The Giants Causeway, Bushmills, County Antrim, Northern Ireland
As mentioned on one of my posts a few weeks ago, through my personal experience of visiting ‘The Giant’s Causeway’ over the years I’ve learned that trying to capture a totally unique & unseen photo here is near impossible, especially during daylight or sunset. Late last night my “curious urge” kicked in once more! So I loaded the car up with equipment & arrived at the ‘Giants Causeway’ for some night scenes with loads of different LED torches. These were used to ‘light paint’ all these rocks to make them visible at night. It was so dark here that without them I couldn’t even see my camera only inches away from my face! Even the dense clouds in the sky were naturally light painted by the light pollution of the nearby town of Portrush. Maybe it’s not a totally unique photo to some folk, but it is my personal attempt to try something different & be more creative. I hope you all enjoy it 💚
Created around 50 to 60 million years ago, Ireland was subjected to intense volcanic activity, when highly fluid molten basalt intruded through chalk beds to form an extensive lava plateau. As the lava cooled, contraction occurred. The extensive fracture network produced the distinctive columns seen today at The Giant’s Causeway. We are truly fortunate to have this wonder of the world right here on our coastline.
