The Legend of Reynisdrangar

This conspicuous rock formation called Reynisdrangar can be found at the famous black beach at Vík í Mýrdal in South Iceland.

Legend has it that three trolls named Skessudrangur, Laddrangur and Langhamar tried to pull a three masted ship to the shore. But they were caught at dawn by the sunlight and were petrified into rocks.
