A giant of a natural wonder

This was our most popular photo for the month. After all, everyone loves a good landscape and a story of a giant to go along with it, and the Giant's Causeway in Ireland doesn't disappoint. While there is a geological truth behind this unique area, there is also a wonderful legend. The story goes that the causeway was really built by a giant named Fionn mac Cumhaill, or Finn MacCool, so that he could battle another giant from Scotland. There are rock relics of the legend, rocks that resemble bits of MacCool’s habitation, including the Giant’s Boot, the Organ, the Giant’s Harp and the Chimney Stacks among others.
