The very small village of Saksun has its church placed rather exposed, not unlike Viðareiði, adding a stout and dramatic mood to the place. Although a seemingly ordinaire place, it is very beautiful and quiet, and a good place to think about ones life and the outside world.

I have removed a lamp in front of the church, which was a bit out of place; you can search google and find many pictures almost identical to this one and see the lamp.

Pano made from 26 HF pics (RAW) in 2 rows, 1/200 sek, f/8, iso 100, developed in DPP (daylight, neutral, ALO off, moderate sharpness), stitched in PTgui pro, down-scaled in Irfanview.


Very impressive, Jan!!

Cheers, Hans-Jörg

Ein idyllischer Ort. Auch hier beeindrucken mich wieder die steilen Wände. Sehr schön, daß Du etwas Sonne hattest.

Ein eindrückliches Bild einer beeindruckenden Landschaft - nur rechts der abgeschnittene Berghang stört die Bildkomposition.
