I have not done a whole lot of traveling in my lifetime, although I look forward to doing much more in the future, but in my limited travels, I have had the opportunity to visit one of the most unusual and unique natural wonders in the world, The Giant’s Causeway.
Located on the upper coast of Northern Ireland, just a few miles outside Bushmills in County Antrim, these basalt columns stretch out into the sea, re-emerging on the other side in Scotland. Although it is known that the columns are volcanic in nature, there is really no explanation for why they formed their unique hexagonal shape.
This was our second trip to The Giant’s Causeway, and although it was overcast and drizzling, it was still an inspiring visit. Both Maureen and I took a number of pictures while there, that is until our camera batteries died. With the grey skies and strong waves that day, I thought the black and white photos really captured the mood of that trip.
The Giant’s Causeway is indeed a Unique place to visit, and I promise to post more of the photos at another time.
To read more about the causeway, my account of our original trip is located here.
