Faroe Islands - Winter Tales Vol. I
The Faroe Islands... A dream destination for landscape photographers and nature enthusiasts. 18 rugged islands in the middle of the atlantic ocean between scotland, norway and iceland. Wild and unspoiled nature, steep mountains, deep fjords, rich nordic culture. In March 2018, during my 3rd trip to this amazing country, I had the opportunity to experience the magnificient landscapes in their winter coat with snow down to the shorelines, unusually and rare conditions even for the Faroe Islands. Enjoy my small selection of winter shots of this beautiful destination.
I´d like to thank Felix Inden for the company on this trip and Marco Grassi for the crazy hike above Tjornuvik.
