Photographer's Note

Located on the northern coast of Northern Ireland. The area consists of about 40,000 basalt interlocking columns, the results of an ancient volcanic activity some 50-60 million years ago. The tops of the columns form stepping stones that lead from the cliff foot and disappear into the sea. Most of the columns are hexagonal although there are also some with 4,5,7 and 8 sides. The tallest are about 12m high.
You should plan you're shotting with regards to the tides which cover and uncover the stones.
