Kittelsen in Lofoten

Far out at sea, on a lonely island, I observed a vast mountain ridge as a mighty mirage on the horizon. It was already that time of day when the midnight sun plunged half of its disc into the sea, only to rise once again. The magical vision transposed an elliptical solar disc on top of another.
