Located in North Iceland, in the Gulf of Húnaflói, stands a massive rock that looks like a grazing dinosaur called Hvítserkur. The spectacular structure is a natural formation on the landscape that adds an intriguing, mystical touch to the surrounding environment. In fact, legend has it that the colossal boulder was once a giant troll seeking to attack a neighboring abbey, but was petrified into a slab of stone when caught in the rising sun.
Whether one believes in folklore or not, it adds to the story of Hvítserkur, which used to be a volcano. The structure is the remains of a 15-meter-high volcano that has almost completely eroded away. Photographers both in and out of Iceland seek to capture shots of the beautiful, monumental rock.
