#46 The Faroe Islands Part 2


Sheep – Fujifilm X-T2 and 10-24 zoom

The landscape of the Faroe Islands is incredible. In the end of August, when we visited the islands, the landscape is green. Really green. Every where you look there is a waterfall – and a sheep. Sheep everywhere you look. Unfortenatly the top of the hills were covered in clouds most of the time. We planned to make some hikes in some different places – but the weather made it almost impossible.

Green landscape, and more sheep – Fujifilm X-T2 and 18-55 zoom

On one occation we were stopped by the tide as well. We were at the small village Saksun and payed the small fare (Yes – some hikes have a small fare. In this case 75 dkr). We did read a sign that showed the best hours to make the hike, before we paid. However – we were not going to wait for five hours, as the sign said. Off we went. After a couple of hundred meters the small path disappered in the water. Nothing to do but to turn around.

Beautiful roads in the clouds – Leica M240 and Zeiss 35/2,8

There are very good roads in the Faroe Island – sometimes very narrow – but still good. The main roads are wide and goes over water on bridges, through mountains in long tunnels and under the water in even longer tunnels. The single lane tunnels are an interesting experience, if you are not used to it. If you choose the old roads – marked with signs with small flowers (beautiful roads) – you instead go over the mountains and this is where you find photos behind every corner.
