I had this exact picture in mind long before I planned my july 2019 ireland roadtrip; It was my goal and my obsession to get this blue tone giant causeway picture. But as an artistic landscape photographer I know how difficult and how frustrated it could be to transcend the phantasm and to put it to life, so i keep the photo in a corner of my heart and brain and decided to take and deal with what nature will give me this particular day.

I woke up at 3 am and walked and climbed 8 kms in the dark irish night with all my photo gear and tripod on my back and as I'm not a fit person, Believe me it cost m a lot! Finally, exhausted I managed to be on the Giant causeway by 4.30 in the morning – what a delightful pleasure to see that I had that incredible ancestral and wonderful end of the land for myself! I can still not Believe it! I took several deep breaths to calm down, enjoy a nice warm cup of tea in the most beautiful blue hour ever and then I set up my tripod and camera in the right composition that I had in mind for months and I managed to transcend my visualised photo. When I saw it on the camera screen, I was nearly hysterical. It was such an amazing and powerful feeling to finally achieve an artistic vision. I will never forget that feeling and this picture will always be special to me.
