After the ferry ride from Scotland to Larne in Northern Ireland, it was on to the big shoot of the day, the famous Giant’s Causeway on the north Irish coast. It’s an easy ten minute walk downhill to the Causeway from the Visitors Centre.
At first sight, the rock formation doesn’t look as impressive as you might expect, but walk through the gap to see the high pillars, then climb up onto the Causeway and go down towards the sea until you get to the black section; that’s when you realize how spectacular it is. A wide-angle lens is good for giving you that expansive close-up to distance look. Lots of different shooting options, even if you’ve not been there in good light.
BTW, take the shuttle bus back, only GBP1.00 and well worth it.
