POTD: Giant’s Causeway

Sunset at the Giant's Causeway, Northern Ireland.

The Giant’s Causeway is a unique coastal formation of basalt columns that jut out into the ocean on Ireland’s northern coast. I made sure to visit there at sunset, and I was rewarded with some really nice clouds. I used HDR from two exposures (Lightroom HDR tutorial) to capture the full range of tones in the scene.

I’m back from a wonderful trip to Ireland. If you’re a Game of Thrones fan, you’ll probably recognize this location as being the “King’s Road.” This avenue of beech trees was planted in the 1700’s and remains a really awesome location! For this shot I used a combination of HDR capture (Nikon D750), Topaz Impression 2, and Flypaper Textures overlaid in Adobe Photoshop. Now back to my recovery from jet lag…
