Location County Country
Giants Causeway Co Antrim Northern Ireland

DescriptionA UNESCO World Heritage site, and a natural wonder of the United Kingdom. It consists of a large area of interlocking basalt columns, along the seashore.
What to ShootShoot the fantastic hexagonal basalt columns and the pools of seawater.
What to TakeTake some graduated filers to tone the sky down as the basalt columns are already dark relative to the sky. Some dense 10-stop ND filters will help you lose the other visitors through long exposures.
ParkingThere is parking at the entrance which sadly costs rather a lot.
Best TimesBest to get there very early or late afternoon before closing time when the place is quiet.
