The Giant's Causeway

The Giant's Causeway in North Ireland , so called because by a story tale it was a road made by a giant to connect to his house as a route, is in reality a lava stream quick cooled of by water and split in its characteristic angular shapes.

A certain resemblance to the monkey rock from the zoo is undeniable.

It still is one of the great miracles of nature with or without people. (Yesterday Biebkriebels also placed some photo's about this phenomena.)

  1. Nature did a good job here. It's no wonder that the locals turned it into folklore.

  5. Nice shots of the monkeys, er, I mean humans on the rocks. It certainly gives the illusion of little people in a giant's world. Wonderful geologic formations as well.

  6. I would love to photograph the causeway when nobody is around. But I'd have to be there before 6am or something.
