Natural hexagonal stepping stones at Giant's Causeway

When visiting Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland, we were amazed by the (mostly) hexagonal stones and columns. These were formed in ancient times by a volcanic eruption. According to legend, the columns were built by a giant (hence the name Giant's Causeway).
