reynisfjara black beach in Iceland

Reynisfjara, Iceland

Reynisfjara is a black pebbled beach on the south coast of Iceland, near Vik. It was a particularly grey morning when we visited and spent a couple of hours dodging the rain. The weather meant that there wasn’t a lot of colour in this long exposure photograph, so black and white processing was always favourite. There is a local story that the basalt sea stacks are a couple of trolls who were pulling a boat to shore when the sun rose and they were petrified. Whether you believe in trolls or not, they are an iconic symbol of this part of Iceland and are named Reynisdrangar.
