Like many natural wonders, Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland is a result of volcanic activity and weathering. The honeycomb-like pattern is not only a geologist’s dream, but also a photographer’s. The middle causeway is where the hexagonal columns are most evident and easy to explore. These basalt columns appear as if they are rising from the beautiful blue sea and attaching themselves to the emerald isle. As a bonus, you’ll find the Bushmill’s Distillery just a couple miles south of the causeway in County Antrim.
