The Giants Causeway Before Dawn – Part 2

Giants Causeway Night

A shot of the Giants Causeway “Honeycomb / Wishing Chair” in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. The shot was taken just before dawn broke, using a Nikon D800 camera with a Nikkor 24-70mm lens. It is a long exposure shot using a Hoya ND400 filter, with a time of 140 seconds. The shot was edited using Photoshop CS6 and Lightroom 4. I then used Topaz DeNoise 5 to reduce the noise within the photo.

The Giants Causeway is an area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt columns, the result of an ancient volcanic eruption.
