One step to eternity by FelixRoeser

Lately I went through my archives and found this shot from an epic morning on the southcoast of Iceland I haven´t published before.
When we arrived in the evening at the foggy and dark coast of Vik after a 400km escape from a bad weatherfront in the east, we would never have thought that the next morning would bring such a gorgeous Sunrise.
The spray of the sea and the golden sunlight breaking through the clouds let the beach appear like an otherwordly place where the mystical Icelandic mythology comes to life again.

Nordic Legends by YiannisPavlis

Just offshore from the black sand beach in Vík, the basalt rock formations, Reynisdrangar, stick up out of the Atlantic like fingers. As the folklore goes, these spindly rock formations are actually trolls frozen in time. You see, trolls are night dwellers. They were trying to drag three ships ashore when they were caught in the sunlight and turned to stone.Please Visit me on Facebook!.

Reynisdrangar by wimdenijs

Reynisdrangar are basalt sea stacks situated under the mountain Reynisfjall near the village Vík í Mýrdal, southern Iceland which is framed by a black sand beach that was ranked in 1991 as one of the ten most beautiful non-tropical beaches in the world.

Legend says that the stacks originated when two trolls dragged a three-masted ship to land unsuccessfully and when daylight broke they became needles of rock.
