According to local Icelandic folklore, these large basalt columns were once trolls trying to pull ships from the ocean to shore. However, these trolls were dim and went out too late in the night; dawn broke on the horizon, turning the trolls into solid stone.

Another legend tells of a husband whose wife was kidnapped and killed by two trolls. The man followed the trolls down to Reynisfjara where he froze them, ensuring that they would never kill again.

So mesmerizing are these features that they featured in Season 7 of the HBO Series Game of Thrones; you can spot them in a few scenes shot ‘North of the Wall’.

Solar Orbiter’s latest images is the highest resolution image of the Sun’s full disc and outer atmosphere, the corona, ever taken. Solar Orbiter is a space mission of international collaboration between ESA and NASA.

I enhanced the resolution from 9148 x 9112 to 12198 x 12150 pixel by using Topaz Gigapixel AI, cleaned the noise and artifacts and did some minor tweaks. The AI did a great job of improving the image without artificially adding features as far as I can tell.

I've also made a 4K video panning over the most interesting features in 100%

Murphy's Haystacks, South Australia

Murphy's Haystacks are inselberg rock formations located at Mortana, between Streaky Bay and Port Kenny on the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia.

They are of a 'tumulus' form of weathered granite outcrop. They are made of a pink, massive, coarsely equigranular rock consisting mostly of quartz and orthoclase. Their appearance may be due to a combination of erosion by underground rainwater and then by subsequent weathering after they were exposed. Most of the pillars emerge without a break from the underlying granite. Their structural base may be of orthogonal or vertically-aligned sheet jointing.

They obtained their name because a traveller in a coach saw the formation in the distance. He asked how a farmer could produce so much hay. As the farm was on a property owned by a man called Murphy, the rocks became known as Murphy's Haystacks.

The site is listed on the South Australian Heritage Register.
