Location: Slope of Húsareyn (275 m)      by: Jan Lindgaard Rasmussen
Area: Faroe Islands      Date: 2015-07-29, 13:40
Our visit on the Faroes coincided with the annual days of national celebration, the so-called Ólavsøka, on 28-29/7. The central figure in the celebration is Olav II of Norway: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olaf_II_of_Norway

On the 29/7 all prominent political, religious and public servants leaders are present at a ceremony in the town, and they finally walk in procession to the parliament to start the new political year. After that all kinds of sports and parties are set off. One such sport is 1 on 1 horseraces, for any man, woman or child, capable of riding any horse of ones own liking (the more contesters the better), at the foot of Húsareyn.

I used this oppertunity to ascent a bit and shoot this pano. Unfortunately I didn't make it far before clouds started to interfere.

Pano made from 23 LF (RAW), 50 mm, f/8, 1/320, iso-100, developed in DPP (ALO off, moderate sharpness, daylight, neutral), stitched in PTGui pro, minor contrast adjustment, down-scaling and sharpening in IrfanView.



...4 weeks remaining... I will be there too :-)

Great pano!

Very nice and interesting pano of an area that was completely unknown to me.

There is no need to be afraid, that viewpoints grow over.

@JE: I am awfully busy right now, so if I don't manage later, now is the time to wish you a great trip. Remember to sprint out when the weather is clear, and don't forget to walk the Slettaratindur - just wait it out on the top for clear weather to set in :-)
