I am 100% not a landscape photographer as I do 80% cars and motorsports and 20% weddings and people, so decided to give it a go. First time on a tripod as well. All taken with Canon 7D, Canon 10-22mm. C&C Welcome!
Thanks for looking!

did you use any filters? ND?

Didn't have any, so used 2 shots and blended together, one exposed for sky, 1 for water. Then blended together. A Gradient ND would have done the job with 1 shot I believe!

Nice photos. #1 is incredible. Love the drama in the sky, its really well composed with some nice foreground interest. It also has the best exposure, as the others are a little hot in parts.

Definitely cool images.
Did 'man' place those hexagon shaped stones or it that natural?

Cheers. I doubt man could've done it and it's a bit like that in Scotland as well. I think it was volcanic magma meeting freezing water and the rock just got damaged. Looks unreal in real life.

Completely natural- columnar basalt is formed by sub-aerial cooling.
