Thirsty Rhino

Once the plug of a volcano, Hvitserkur rises nearly 50 feet from the sea. Over the years the craters surrounding the rock plug gave way to the pounding Atlantic Ocean leaving only this unusual outcropping behind. According to Icelandic legend, the rock was a troll who forgot to retreat from the light and was turned to stone in the sunrise. From this angle it resembles a rhinocerious drinking from the water.
