The flowers of what?

Hvannadalshnúkur:

Hvannadalshnúkur or Hvannadalshnjúkur (pronounced [ˈkvanːatalsˌn̥ʲuːkʏr]) is a pyramidal peak on the northwestern rim of the summit crater of the Öræfajökull volcano in Iceland and is the highest point of the island. An official measurement completed in August 2005 established its height as 2,109.6 metres (6,921 ft)[3] (previously set as 2,119 m (6,952 ft)).[1]

The peak is part of the Vatnajökull National Park. The route to the top is a popular climb though numerous and frequently hidden crevasses call for experienced mountain guides.

What a great shot of life finding a way!
