Hvítserkur Cliff

Hvítserkur Cliff
 
Hvítserkur is a curious gigantic upright rock slab, 15 m high and white with bird droppings. It rises up from the sea in Húnaflói Bay in north-west Iceland. Hvítserkur roughly translates into "white shirt" and the name comes from being covered in bird droppings. It is said that Hvítserkur was a monster with intentions to demolish a church nearby but before it could execute it´s plan the sun rose above the horizon and the monster turned into stone.
