Photographer's Note

You wouldn't believe how many people took pictures of themselves standing on the rock outcropping in the distance. I had to wait at least 15 minutes for it to clear up, and then I only had about 20 seconds to snap as many shots as I could before someone else made their way out there.

The inimitable Giant's Causeway, County Antrim, Northern Ireland. I generally try to avoid the tour bus hordes when it comes to nature, but this is one I was more than happy to make an exception on. Yes, there were hundreds upon hundreds of people here, but I don't blame them. It really is a fantastic place.

I'm sure most people on this site are familiar with the Giant's Causeway, but for those who aren't, it's a massive outcropping of about 37,000 basalt columns, most of which form a near perfect hexagon. Add to that the raging sea and some of the most spectacular cliffs in Northern Ireland surrounding the whole scene, and you've got one heck of a sight. We spent two hours here and I wouldn't have left any earlier. Really an incredible place.
