Hornvik valley, Hornstrandir peninsula.
Hornvik was home to several families of Arctic foxes. They are cautious except when they smell food. I accidentally left my flash on when taking the picture, hence the ghostly eyes.

One of the most breath-taking places I have ever been.
The ubiquitous Hörnvik fly.
