Photo Of The Day: “Giant's Causeway”

Today’s Photo Of The Day is by Ryszard Lomnicki.

“The Giant’s Causeway is an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns,the result of an ancient volcanic eruption,” says Lomnicki. “It is located in County Antrim on the northeast coast of Northern Ireland. The tops of the columns form stepping stones that lead from the cliff foot and disappear under the sea. Most of the columns are hexagonal, although there are also some with four, five, seven or eight sides. The tallest are about 12 meters high, and the solidified lava in the cliffs is 28 meters thick in places.”
