From the exposed north face of the North Atlantic, to the protected straits of the main islands in 10 minutes. Although the size of the islands is small, there is a distinct quiet and feeling to small straits, compared to the always tricky and dangerous conditions at the exposed coastline. The straits between Streymoy and Eysturoy are simply called Sundini - "the Straits".

In this pano - also done by the roadside - the showpiece is the waterfalls of Fossdalur. But still, even without that, it is a typical and characteristic view.

Pano made from 14 LF (RAW), 50 mm, iso 100, f/8, 1/200 sek, developed in DPP (Daylight, neutral, moderate sharpness, ALO off), stitched in PTgui, minor contrast adjustment, downscaling and sharpening in Irfanview.

Labels a little later.


Yet another amazing view from these islands. I am really surprised how expressive this landscape ist - had expected much less. Cheers, MArtin
