The house that geology built. by LordLJCornellPhotos The house that geology built. by LordLJCornellPhotos
These cliffs with basalt columns are at Reynisfjara beach near Vik in southern Iceland. There are lots of puffins as well as other sea birds in these rocks.

There are basalt columns in Ireland, isn't there? Even fatter columns going into a cave with a waterway? Never been but I think I remember a photo.

Ah. Best to stay away, in that case, my friend.
There is, even in the most exquisite expressions of nature, a critical mass of habitual observation, beyond which the spirit of the place is as hopelessly inaccessible to the thoughtful as it is, regardless of any other circumstance, to the thoughtless.

And it does rather look like a house. It always amazes me what nature can create all by itself with no 'help' from man.

I love this! It's like something out of Game of Thrones - not that I watched it, only a couple of episodes :)

It's great isn't it?
I gave up on the 1st episode of Game Of Thrones but months later I read the books from start to finish
Then I watched the TV series again and this time I could enjoy it better
