Reynisdrangar, Vik, Iceland

Legend has it that two large trolls spotted a three-masted ship adrift in the sea, and waded out to tow it to shore. As so often seems to happen with trolls, they mistimed their efforts, and were caught by the rising sun, which turned them to the basaltic sea stacks that remain today. This view is from Kirkjufjara, in Vik. Around the point, the cliffs at Reynisfjara are full of nesting puffins.
