A new perspective on the Giant's Causeway
The final stage of my fisheye adventure took me to the Giant's Causeway. On the walk to the causeway I discovered a brand new footpath has been built in time for the new season. What better way to emphasise it than with the new lens.
By this time it had turned into one of those rare, glorious April days where the skies are a dramatic blue, there is plenty of white cloud detail and there is always a chance of a rainbow. (Not dramatic but it is there!)
From the same spot where I took the first photo I turned towards the West and found that the lens could take in the entire sweep of the bay.
The causeway itself, of course, was the real prize but because of its justifiable popularity it is always a struggle, even in bad weather, to find it 'tourist free'. This day was no exception. It was like crossing a main road without the benefit of traffic lights - I had to grab the opportunity when it came. The following are the images I managed to make, with people and without. I hope you enjoy this rather different take on our most famous tourist destination.
