“UNSPOILED LAND”- FAROE ISLANDS PHOTO WORKSHOP, 23-27 October, 2017
23-27 October 2017
Tour leader : landscape photographer George Thalassinos for a Photography Adventure in Faroe Islands
Duration: 5 days / 4 nights
Mysterious, remote, unspoiled, rugged and imposing, the Faroe Islands are one of the most magnetic locations in the World for the landscape photographer.
Battered by the elements, towering cliffs rise from the depths of the ocean delineating a group of islands where time seems to have stopped and the feeling of being far away from it all overwhelms the senses of the visitor.
Isolated in the Atlantic Ocean, halfway between Scotland and Iceland, it is no surprise that these islands have been ranked by National Geographic as the most authentic and unspoiled islands in the World.
Dynamic, changeable and dramatic; the light and weather conditions are as impressive as the landscape. Snow, mist, sunny skies and dramatic clouds can happen anytime.
During 3 full days we will explore and photograph the most interesting and photogenic areas of the different islands of Faroe.
You will be landing at Vagar airport. I will be there to pick you up in order to take you to your hotel. We will get acquainted with each other and arrange the last details before we begin our photographic trips
We start early from our hotel and drive straight to some amazing spots for the sunrize.
Sørvágsvatn is the largest lake in the Faroe Islands. It was used during World War II by the British army as a runway to land seaplanes. An optical illusion along the cliffs, at times, makes this lake appear as though it is suspended above the ocean with a perspective that would make M.C. Escher smile. Sørvágsvatn has a waterfall named Bøsdalafossur, which crashes 30 metres down a cliff directly into the Atlantic Ocean.
Gásadalur has been one of the most isolated villages in the Faroes. It is difficult to get to the village by sea and it was not until 2004 that the village was connected to the rest of the island by road when the tunnel was built. The people of Gásadalur used to walk this path when they had to go to the neighbouring villages to trade or for other errands.
For the last two days of the workshop we will be spending time on the islands below where we will have many great photo opportunities at the sunrise\sunset
Streymoy is the largest and most populated island of the Faroe Islands. The capital, Tórshavn, is located on its east coast. The name means “island of currents”
Eysturoy is separated by a narrow sound from the main island of Streymoy. Eysturoy is extremely rugged, with some 66 separate mountain peaks, including Slættaratindur, the highest peak in the archipelago. Important settlements on Eysturoy are Fuglafjørður in the north and the densely populated area of the municipalities of Runavík and Nes in the south.
Viðoyis the northern-most island in the Faroe Islands, located east of Borðoy to which it is linked via a causeway. The name means wood island, despite the fact that no trees grow on the island
