Mysterious World

By Philip_H
Part of the world-famous Reynisfjara shore, near the village Vik in Myrdalur on Iceland's south coast, widely regarded as the most impressive shore in Iceland.

Reynisfjara is a black pebble beach and features an amazing cliff of regular basalt columns resembling a rocky step pyramid, which is called Gardar. Out in the sea are the spectacularly shaped basalt sea stacks Reynisdrangar. The area is rich in bird life, including puffins, fulmars and guillemots.

According to folklore, two trolls attempted to drag a ship to land but were turned to stone as daylight broke, turning them into into the Reynisdrangar stacks.

Thank you for looking and for the lovely response to 'Lost Horizon' and the highly appreciated UAs GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
