[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Giants Causeway is a region located at the tip of Northern Ireland and is renowned world wide for its beauty and unique geological qualities.

The region is made of a volcanic rock called basalt which flowed out of the earths crust some 50-60 million years ago. When it cooled and solidified the chemical elements in the basalt formed approximately some 40,000 geometric, mostly hexagonal, shapes.

Hi Steven!

As always perfect picture. Beautifull light and colours, great POV and DOF, fantastic place to photograph. This time shape of blurred waves is unique.

Hi stephen,

I really like Your landscapes, this one is just as great as the others- picture is full of details, with fantastic composition and colours. Only one thing I could changed- the colour of clouds, is this the reason of use the Lee Filter? I'd prefer nice white clouds for this shot, but rest is really good.

Best regards,

  • Great

Incredibly sharp with very fine detail.
Superb composition and low-down POV.
Great wide view.
Superb timing to capture the wave.

Very well done, Stephen!


excellent low POV and the splash is a great bonus
