Here are two photos taken at High Island, Hong Kong.
Both photos show columnar jointing around High Island, Hong Kong.
Columnar jointing is a geological structure where sets of intersecting closely spaced fractures, referred to as joints, result in the formation of a regular array of polygonal prisms, or columns. Columnar jointing occurs in many types of volcanic rocks and forms as the rock cools and contracts. Columnar jointing can occur in cooling lava flows and ashflow tuffs, as well as in some shallow intrusions.(Source: Wikipedia)
