Natural landscapes: celebrating St. Patrick’s Day

GIANT’S CAUSEWAY, COUNTY ANTRIM, NORTHERN IRELAND

I made this photo during a May 2017 cruise ship vacation, but decided to post it in March as a way to celebrate the day when everyone wants to be at least a little bit Irish.
I was blessed to be born in what was then a predominantly Irish community in the Canadian province of Quebec. There are other nationalities in my heritage, but Irish is the only one that’s ever counted.
The causeway contains about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, created as a result of an ancient volcanic fissure eruption. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1986 and, before the pandemic, attracted almost a million visitors annually. Here’s another picture of Ireland’s stunning north coast: https://wp.me/p2ccTX-X5.
