Another roadside impression. And again, a very typical view of the Faroes. Here we see the second highest mountain on Streymoy, Skælingur, at 767 m.

Pano made from 27 HF pics (RAW), 50 mm, f/6,3, 1/320 sec, iso-100, developed in DPP (daylight, neutral, ALO off, moderate sharpness), stitched in PTGui pro, minor contrast adjustment, down-scaling and sharpening in IrfanView.


Faszinierende Landschaft - kultiviert und wild zugleich!
LG, Danko.

As Danko said - fascinating landscape.
Did you ever been on top of the Skælingur ?

@Steffen: No, my list of climbed mountains on the Faroes is quite empty; I didn't manage one single top. The two next days, however, allowed some hiking in different places, but fog and clouds made "going for the top" somewhat pointless. LG Jan.

The archaic landscape is in remarkable contrast to the quality of the roads. EU funded? Cheers, Martin

Hier ist die, eigentlich störende Straße, ein schöner Rahmen!

LG & behüt Dich Gott,

@Martin: No, The Faroes aren't part of the EU, neither is Greenland! Both receive substantial summes from Denmark, and in particular the roads and tunnels on The Faroes produced some recentment in Denmark in the 90'es: "Those spoiled islanders use ALL our money!" - stuff like that. Now I think it has softened; most danes accept that a modern way of life is part of the prize for playing "The great empire-game":-)
