...Petrified Troll... by XavierJamonet ...Petrified Troll... by XavierJamonet
-03h56-

A really strange lava formation, Hvitserkur arch in the north of Iceland...
A legend tells that in the dark past times, a Troll was petrified here by the rays of the Sun.
In the light of the midnight sun.

I sees it! I sees the troll! 8D

When I first looked at it, I actually saw something more like... a bull or a goat grazing. XD
Looks really cool though. Iceland is so amazing. Created by fire and ice, rock and sea... It truly does seem magical and otherworldly.
