Giant's Causeway, County Antrim, Aerial View
Located on the Antrim Coast (northern coast) of Northern Ireland, this World Heritage Site was formed 1000s of years ago by quick cooling lava, crystalising into 40,000 mostly hexagonal columns of basalt. Photographed from about 100 feet up by my DJI Mavic Pro drone.

Doolin Beach (County Clare) with view of Cliffs of Moher
The characteristic limestone formations of the Burren extend out to the sea at Doolin, the departure point for access to the Aran Islands. Returning there on a rainy day to glimpse the Cliffs of Moher, I discovered the provocative formations of the Burren as it goes down to the sea, eroding into tidal pools as it approaches the ocean.
Doolin Beach, Littoral Reef
As the limestone of the Burren gets closer to the surf at Doolin, it breaks up into a labyrinth of tidal pools, forming a complex and beautiful reef. Cliffs of Moher in the background.
Algae Pool, Doolin Beach, Littoral Reef
As the limestone of the Burren gets closer to the surf at Doolin, it breaks up into a labyrinth of tidal pools, forming a complex and beautiful reef. Some of the pools are quite large, like this one.
Burren, County Clare, Ireland
The Burren is a large area covered with eroded limestone blocks, some with suggestive shapes.
Burren, CountyClare, Ireland
A nature walk takes the visitor on a brief tour of the various environments of the Burren, including the bare limestone blocks themselves, a wooded area and a field of wildflowers.
Roche's Point Rocks, County Cork
The varied rocks of Roche's Point, on the southern Coast of Ireland, County Cork.
Arch, White Rocks, Counyt Antrim, N. Ireland
White Rocks is a designated park area on the western side of the Antrim Coast in Northern Ireland, but the white limestone continues all the way down the coast to the east. This was a particularly striking arch in the park.
Molokai,Hawaii, from Helicopter
Molokai is the mostly uninhabited island north of Maui, 10 minutes by helicopter from the Maui airport. It gives an idea of what Hawaii looked like before development.
Three Waterfalls, Molokai, Hawaii
Molokai is the mostly uninhabited island north of Maui, 10 minutes by helicopter from the Maui airport. It gives an idea of what Hawaii looked like before development.
Steep Valley, Molokai, Hawaii
Hawaiian weather is extremely rainy. Between rainstorms we caught glimpses of the steep valleys of Molokai, the largely uninhabited island 10 minutes north of Maui by helicopter.
Reefs off the developed coast of Molokai, Hawaii
Exclusive resorts on the northern coast of Molokai face out towards the shallow water reefs, which this helicopter perspective offers an astonishing view of.
