Feeling small

by Jean-Michel Laurenti October. 06, 2017 686 views

There's something special about being alone in front of a breathtaking scenery, it's like having a rare privilege.

Waking up before everyone, walking in the dark, waiting for the sun to rise slowly, hear no other sound than waves and birds ...

Maybe my camera was just an excuse to stand in front of the ocean in the unique site of Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland ... But it was really intense to feel so small when capturing these images.

Great images! I remember seeing the place, Giants Causeway, for the first time in the booklet of a Coldplay album. I thought they were just concrete blocks. I really like your photos in this post – They don't even need Chris Martin to make them interesting. ;)

Hi Christian, sorry for late reaction to your comment! I agree, even when being there, with the geological explanation, it's hard to believe that such a place is just the creation of nature...I'm glad you enjoyed the pictures, thanks !

Beautiful photos ! I often have the same feelings, sometimes nature is so overwhelming, that you just stand there and feel small and
in this moments I'm so really thankful, that I have the possibility to see this wonders...It's like being blessed...Not easy to explain. blush

Hi Carmen, thanks for passing by. Yep, it's hard to believe that it's entirely natural...but it is!

Hi Sigrid, I'm just glad you enjoyed them, but honestly...the pictures are very little compared to the real place ! :-)

Hi Helen, yes, I was lucky enough to stay there one night, and to have good weather conditions both in the morning and in the evening! Thanks for your comment!
