Photographer's Note

The legend of Torghatten Legend has it that this extraordinary hole in the rock was made by Hestmannen's arrow. - One fine evening Hestmannen caught sight of Lekam鼜a and the seven sisters bathing in the sea near Landego. The sight alone of Lekam鼜a awoke a flaming desire in Hestmannen, and he decided then and there to steal her away at midnight. He mounted his horse and galloped southwards, in full armour and with his cape j flung over his shoulder. The seven virgins noticed his approach and fled in full haste until they could run no more; they flung themselves down on the ground near Alstahaug. But Lekam鼜a kept on fleeing southwards while the king of the S鷰na wit mountains watched over her flight. Dawn approached with its golden clouds, and the S鷰na hng watched carefully as the disappointed suitor put an arrow in his bow. As the arrow winged its way from Hestmannen's bow, the king of S鷰na blocked its path with his hat, saving Lekam鼜a from its sharp and deadly point. The hat fell to the ground by Torgar. And just at that moment the sun appeared over the horizon and everything turned to stone..

Torghatten is situated near Bronnoysund and here I took this picture from the hole of the king of S鷰na's hat formed by Hestmannen's arrow... In WS , you may see another picture of that hole...
