Columns   Staffa, Inner Hebrides, Scotland

Deep within the recesses of Fingal's cave on the isle of Staffa were some very gorgeous columns of hexagonal cross-sectioned basalt.  the best thing about them was the range of hues they displayed with their algae growths encrusting them near the waterline, deep violet and purple and velvety greens fading into darkness with the fall off of light as it falters towards the back of the cave.
