Basalt Columns Staffa   Staffa, Inner Hebrides, Scotland

This was my first ever visit to Staffa one I have planned for a while.  I finally got a weather window and this sight greeted me on my arrival and I was most assuredly inspired.  Staffa is quite a young island and is comprised of massive hexagonal basalt columns.  It is the Giants Causeway on steroids and is a 45 minute boat ride from Mull, one that does not always guarantee a landing.  This is a typical cliff side detail view handheld from our boat near to the legendary Fingals cave.
