Moonlight Lupines

Nothing but lupine flowers all the way to the ridge. During the Icelandic summer, the sun does not move across the sky the way we are used to. Throughout the short, four-hour ‘night’, it stays just below the horizon continually lighting up the sky. Driving east outside Vik, you’ll find the sun and mountains on your left, and moon and sea on your right, rising and falling in an elliptical dance as the full moon illuminates the vibrant purple nootkas.
