Neist Point (pronounced 'Neest') is renowned for its rock formations, which are closely akin to those at the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland. It is said that the causeway extends under the sea from Northern Ireland to the Isle of Skye.

HI from the CC CLub,

Well, it has been said gorgeous shot, the leading lines are stunning and lead to you to the coupe de grace at the end. I can see the horizon though and it is tilted, but it is so barely there it is not even thought of.

Title is a little long, but with a shot like that who cares!!

well done, a very nice job

This is so nice it seems like a fantasy. There is no sense of the horizon.
