The Troll of the North West

Continuing our journey into the winter wonderland of Iceland.  On the Vatnsnes Peninsula in North-West Iceland just off shore stands the majestic Hvítserkur, a 15 meters' high monolith.  The legend goes that Hvítserkur is a petrified troll. The troll lived in Strandir and wanted to tear down the bells at Þingeyrarklaustur convent. But fortunately it was caught in the open during the very early hours of sunrise.  As all trolls are turned into stone by daylight, the mighty stone structure in now an icon for many photographers.
