Looked freezing over there, how did you cope with shooting in such cold conditions?
Incredibly difficulty… Hahaha… We used mittens that we could pull our fingers in and out of quickly… So hard shooting with gloves on.
The scenery looks mind-bendingly beautiful; it must have been hard to decide what to take pictures of with everything just looking jaw-dropping?
Yes yes and yes… It was seriously unreal… There is such an incredibly fine line between “You can point your camera anywhere and get a great shot” and just “stop and try and take it all in”. Never really been in a position where I just know that a camera will always fall short of what I’m seeing…
Speaking of jaw-dropping, get any vertigo standing on the edges of those sheer cliffs?
Hahaha… Yes and yes… Especially when it is a clean drop into the ocean. Mountains are great cos there’s often a slow gradient. But with these cliffs, its really 200m straight down into the ocean. Nothing in between.
Happen to spot any waves whilst you were missioning around the coast?
Craig and I are both surfers and were constantly looking for some waves along the coast, sadly nothing while we were there. We hoping to follow in the steps of Chris Burkard and get some waves a little more north, Iceland and the arctic circle.
Get to eat any strange local dishes? A bit of whale maybe!?
Nothing that was really off the charts. But it really was salmon country. So Salmon for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
See anything weird and wonderful besides the landscape?
The most beautiful old churches and homes. All with these incredible grass roofs.
Any recommendations for peeps planning a visit there?
If you go in the winter, pack warm, really warm and a solid pair of hiking boots. We were incredibly well kitted out by Cape Union Mart, can’t go wrong.
Thanks to Dean for sharing his journey, have just added the Faroe’s to my bucket list, despite the absence of surf.
