The Grand Causeway, Giants Causeway

Morning sunlight sweeps across The Grand Causeway with Aird Snout rising prominently in the background. The Giants Causeway was formed some 60-65 million years ago when molten lava, during intense volcanic activity, cooled and shrank in successive lava flows. This resulted in both vertical and horizontal contraction forming 40000 hexagonal basalt columns up to 12m in height.
