Location: Slope of Villingadalsfjall (100 m)      by: Jan Lindgaard Rasmussen
Area: Faroe Islands      Date: 2015-07-27, 16:00
During our trip to The Faroes we had the luck of staying a week with a family we had known for many years, in Klaksvķk. We took the ferry from Hirtshals so we could bring the car along. The only pre-planned trip was an over-night visit to Nólsoy during the week, but apart from that we would improvise.

The first day gave the worst weather, heavy rains and fog, but in the afternoon it cleared up a bit. Therefore we drove a trip to the nice little village of Višareiši, in the north of the island Višoy. The village lies at the foot of the mighty Villangadalsfjall, the third highest top on the islands. The fog and clouds made a "gipfelsturm" out of the question, but noticing the ever changing condition I went up a little anyway. And wouldn't you know, suddenly there was a window of some kind of clarity, in which to shoot a pano. That became my approach for the week; shoot the panos when the weather is clear, don't wait to be on the right spot. As it turned out we were pretty lucky with the weather since we only had two more afternoons of rain. Still, truly clear weather only happened on one evening and the following morning.

The pano was made in haste, and therefore I had to do som cloning in the lower corners, or else loose the church, which I prefer not to. 29 HF pics (RAW), 50 mm, f/5,6, 1/320 sec, iso-200, developed in DPP (daylight, neutral, ALO off, moderate sharpness), contrast adjustment in GIMP, down-scaling and sharpening in Irfanview


Very fascinating ladscape!
Gruss, Danko.

Great pano. Good that you could save the church. Otherweise the low cloud contributes to a very successful "Bildschnitt". I would imagine that in clearer weather you would obtain a very different kind of panorama here. Cheers, Martin

A great, almost mystical mood of a pioneer of the Faroe Islands ;-) ...

Mountains which have apparently no peaks and steep slopes run down to the sea - the dimensions are very impressive.

Great!!! In July I will be there too :-)

Great and unusual pano.

Thank you.

@Jörg: I hope you will have an awesome trip, and I will look forward to see a lot of panos from there. My own panos from there, as I hope you will see, are quite un-perfect, because moments of clear weather could break through quite unexpected. Hopefully you will be more patient with your equipment as I was. I got severel otherwise good series over-exposed, because the contrast between the dark/shadows and the clouds turned out more "violent" than what I judged on location. This one is also grenzwertig. LG Jan.

Jan, solche Operationen wie Du sie mit der Kirche gemacht hast, habe ich auch schon gemacht. Ich kann sehr gut verstehen, daß das Fotografieren bei diesen Wetterverhältnissen nicht so einfach ist. Trotz alledem hast Du letzten Endes ein schönes Panroamabild geschaffen, das die Inselwelt und ihre Wetterverhältnisse treffend wiedergibt.

Gewaltig, wie sich die Berge aus dem Meer erheben. Die Häuser erscheinen wie Spielzeug.
