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.

Alone with my camera, tripod and the sound of nature I stood waiting for the long exposure to finish, it wasn't long actually with just an exposure of 59 seconds but enough to give a balanced image and how the scene looked to the viewer.

The largest of the waves had gone also and I had the time to enjoy the impressive Atlantic Ocean stretching beyond the causeway.

I have written about the Giant's Causeway here on Panoramic Ireland before, have a look here and here.

I'm sure you will agree it is a place best to be enjoyed alone or with a group of friends.

Join Panoramic Ireland, that's me by the way, on a photography outing at the Giant's Causeway, find out more here.
