|This is Reynisdragnar at the small town of Vík in South-Iceland. Get to know more about the place below! (From Wikipedia)|
Reynisdrangar are basalt sea stacks situated under the mountain Reynisfjall near the village Vík í Mýrdal.
The village Vík in the south of Iceland is indicated on road signs from a long distance (about 180 km from Reykjavík), despite its small size (about 300 inhabitants). It is an important service center for the inhabitants and tourists around the Mýrdalsjökull glacier.
A remarkable feature is the beautiful black beach with the Reynisdrangar, black basalt columns sculpted by the sea. A folk tale says that they are former trolls which were caught outside at dawn. The sea around them is rather wild and stormy, so travelers will not be surprised to discover a monument to the memory of drowned seamen at the beach. The American journal Islands Magazine counted this beach as one of the ten most beautiful beaches on Earth in 1991. The town is the wettest place in Iceland.
