It was busy. Heck, it's always busy. I should go at night, really...but apparently it's busy then too, with local photographers, wouldn't you know.
The stones are pretty impressive, truth be told:
The Causeway is an area where the rocks have formed into columns of hexagonal shape, on account of volcanic activity several years ago. There's about 40,000 of them, apparently and it's Northern Ireland's only Unesco World Heritage site. There are similar stones on the Scottish Isle of Staffa, just across the water.
|I gave up trying to get shots without people in them. Mostly folk wander about, looking at the stones, photographing them and listening to the audio guide that they pick up at the Visitors' Centre.|
