Tröllabörn á Krossanesi / Children of the Trolls in Krossanes, Vatnsnes - North Iceland

These rock formations on Krossanes in Vatnsnes are called Tröllabörn "Children of the Trolls"

implying that these have been children of trolls who became a rock at sunrise, because in Icelandic folklore is written that trolls were only able to travel in a dark night, but if the sun rose they became rocks. Rock formations of trolls can be found in several places around Iceland.
