Purple flowers (Lupine) in Iceland

After visiting geysers in Iceland, we climbed up the mountain to get a better look of the landscape. The purple flowers, Lupine, were originally imported from Norway. The flowers over populated the island, taking over the whole island. Although the flowers are beautiful, it has dominated other plants. Iceland is now trying to decrease the spread of the beautiful flowers.
