The weather of the previous clear night gave hopes for some early far views. It was to some degree granted. I took the earliest ferry from Nólsoy, at 0720 am, and laid all my eggs in one basket: I would go for Slættaratindur, at 882 m the highest point on the Faroes. I almost made it, but the clouds was beginning to draw up around the Faroes, and the summit had a fan of fog around it.

I made a few pre-emptive panos going up the road, since I didn't know quite how much tiefblick I would have on my ascent. Here I like the fjells behind the Eiðisvatn, which later disappeared from the view.

Pano made from 19 HF pics (RAW), 50 mm, iso-100, f/8, 1/320 sec, developed in DPP (daylight, neutral, ALO off, moderate sharpness), stitched in PTGui pro, minor contrast adjustment, downscaling and sharpening in Irfanview.


Nice sunny view - I guess it's a rare moment. KR Arno

Nice view and I think even Shaun felt it was a special moment ;-)

Sehr schön gezeigt! Herzliche Grüße Velten

Ein wohl besonderer und fast außergewöhnlicher Moment, die Faroer in diesem Licht zu sehen ... wunderbar!!!

Herzliche Grüße

... but where is Timmy ?
Another beautiful work out of your Faroe sequel.

At last some sun. I always enjoy the Google Maps links here - in combination with the panorama one can appreciate the setting. Cheers, Martin

A very nice light. For good-weather-panoramas the Faroe Islands are a difficult location.

@HJB1 and WS: Timmy has strayed a bit, and can be seen at around 296 degrees :-)

Regarding the weather, this was by far the best we had, at noon it was back to normal with low hanging clouds.

Prima, daß Du auch mal etwas Sonne hattest!

The scenery is somewhat reminiscent of the western Regions of Ireland, where I spent some weeks in 1973. KR Wilfried

Because of the sun it will be your best of Faroer.

I think Heinz chose the wrong button...

@Heinz, I have made a reload, if you want to correct your vote. LG Jan.

Excuse me 
Jan, I had not even noticed that that had made.
