Stone Puzzle

This is the second time I have been onto this rocky outcrop. Its on the beach below the old shack near the popular Seltjarnarnes Viti, Iceland.


I had to wade in ocean up to my knees to get there which was quite cold in winter in Iceland. Luckily the ocean was calm this day. I did not know if the tide was going up or down when I finally got there. Thinking that I was going to getting into serious trouble if it was going up I started shooting. Again luck was on my side as saw the tide go down. If it hadn´t I would have had to spend part of the night on this small rock outcrop.


The octagon shaped stones are the top of basalt columns that are not that uncommon in lava rock.


Thanks guys in advance for the comments. I read each and every one carefully and with gratitude.
