Photo of the day: Hvítserkur

Rising from the depths of the sea like a magnificent stone monster is Hvítserkur – a 15 meter high basalt stack.


Legend has it that the rock was a troll who forgot to retreat from the sun and turned into stone.

You can find Hvítserkur just of the shore on the eastern side of Vatnsnes in North-West Iceland. Photo by: Paul Morris.
