    After sunset, Blue Hour at the Giant's Causeway

    Landscape photography is a fine pursuit; much like the angler will appreciate the solitude, or camaraderie, to be found on a riverbank or lakeside so too the landscape photographer enjoys an evening out on the coast surrounded by nature.

    Here is no exception, the famous basalt columns of Northern Ireland's world-famous World Heritage Site Giant's Causeway had done their work for the day and the last feet had been lifted off these natural regular-sided stepping stones.

    Flow and Swirl in the Woodland River

    A woodland river flowing and swirling through the rocks under the tree canopy high above.

    It just takes time, time for the action of the flowing water to finally erode the obstacles in its way, slowly carving a fine channel through even a tough, durable rock such as granite.

    The Campanile, Trinity College Dublin

    Trinity College is most famously associated with the Book of Kells, a national treasure, and the Long Room Library in which it is housed.

    But the campus of Ireland's oldest university, founded in 1592, is a peaceful haven away from the busy streets of the Irish capital.

    A landmark in the university grounds, and indeed in Dublin itself, the campanile stands at 100ft or just over 30 metres and is one of the city's most photographed structures.

    Beech Trees in Autumn

    Beech trees fagus sylvatica are one of the finest trees to find in an Irish woodland.

    This non-native species was introduced at some point in history, many centuries ago at least, and has become so widespread that it would appear to be a native Irish tree.
