Vík í Mýrdal, the “bay at the swampy valley”, the southernmost place in Iceland, about 190km from Reykjavík, just south of the volcano Katla.
It is said that if Katla were to erupt, the church would not be damaged as it is located high on the mountain.
Vík Church, Víkurkirkja built in 1932-1934, has about 200 seats, treasures from the 18th century are said to be kept here.
On the black lava beach we fight against the orcan like forcy storm, 30m/s to photograph the solidified basalt lava mass. Three black spiers, Reynisdrangar, Skessudrangar, Landdrangur.
Iceland is a land of legends and storytellers. It is said that trolls tried to land a ship and got petrified (from the book Legends and Tales from Iceland that I bought).
Wild, raging, stormy, roaring waves, dramatic nature.
