Beautiful, and breath taking. Until I saw the pilot whale slaughter......I know they need the whale meat, and that they probably do it in a sustainable way, but, still don't like it and that's just tough on me I suppose...
In the North Atlantic, halfway between Norway and Iceland, the Faroe Islands are home to more than 50,000 people. The rugged, treeless archipelago is part of the Kingdom of Denmark, and has been inhabited by humans (and sheep) since the early 8th century. The local economy relies heavily on fishing and maritime industry. The unique landscape and location attracts photographers with its fantastic play of light between sun, cloud, meadow, cliff, and sea.
