Location: Off Torshavn (30 m)      by: Jan Lindgaard Rasmussen
Area: Faroe Islands      Date: 2015-07-26, 21:23
On our journey to The Faroes, expected arrival was at 22:30, which gave hope for a nice approach in the sunset. Again we were pretty lucky with the weather; although clouds "interfered", most of the view on the islands was clear. As with "the norwegian approach", it was getting pretty dark, though.

Traditionally, The Faroes comprise 18 islands, with a few small holms in addition. I was very lucky to get nearly all of them into this pano; only Skugvoy and Mykines are missing.

The pano was made from 21 pics (RAW), iso-200, f/6,3, 1/500 sec, 70-200mm @70mm, developed in DPP (cloudy, neutral, ALO off, moderate sharpness), stitched with PTgui pro, contrast adjusted in GIMP, downscaling and sharpening in Irfanview.

Great! I planned to go there too next year...

Eine herrliche Abendstimmung! Sieht auch in der verkleinerten Vorschau sehr gut aus.

Einzigartig!

Very nice, even the spot @303° .
btw, is it true that the highest volcano of eastern Island can be seen from the highest summit of the Faroe islands on a distance of about 450km ?
I never simulate it, just heard about.

@Jörg E: I hope you will. It is a fantastic subalpine landscape; every mountain, every roadturn, and every village is a pano-prospekt.

@Steffen: No, it is not true, it is an urban legend. The view was claimed by an english soldier on the Faroes during ww2, but not documented in any way, and most likely he confused a distant cloudlayer with Iceland. You can read about it on the english wiki-page for Slættaratindur, highest mountain of The Faroes: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sl%C3%A6ttaratindur

@Jan 
...here... look: This is the reason, why I MUST go there: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=feR12pQ8dXc ...I think it´s also stunning without eclipse and this music....
2015/09/06 23:59, Jörg Engelhardt
Wow, fantastic!!

I think I also need to go there some day...

Really fantastic, especially because there is not the usual egg yolk colour in the sunset area. LG Wilfried

Hammer!

Outstanding! 
Und du warst ja wirklich weit draußen! Endlich ein echtes Pano von diesen Inseln. Das Licht passt zu dem, was man von diesem mystischen Ort erwartet. Anticipation what comes next.

Awesome - thanks Jan, "Chapeau"!!!!!

Regards, Hans-Jörg

Perhaps this could be an answer to my request made at N.17920!
Cheers, Alberto.

@ Alberto
i agree 100%!!
2015/09/07 19:00, Hans-Jörg Bäuerle
Wonderful pano. But... it reminds me to the red colored sea...
2015/09/07 21:35, Mentor Depret
Fantastic landscape and light!
2015/09/07 22:58, Peter Brandt
Great combination of a picture with fantastic light and a thorough geographic documentation with detailed labeling. Cheers, Martin

Kudos to Jan for this spectacular pano ! Greetings HJ
2015/09/08 21:32, Hans-Jürgen Bayer
Thank you for the feedback - it's much appreciated.

@Alberto: A very nice association!

@Jörg: Yes, a special place, even when there is no eclipse...The population is around 50000, and in many respects extremely creative. Most people are surprised of how much music the islanders produce. To imagine the same amount of music to come from towns like Roskilde (same population)? No...And they seem very stout and proud of their abilities.

Here is another good piece of music, from the 80's, called "A ferd til dreymaland", word for word meaning "Auf fahrt zu Land der Träume": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lBin8RVVOcg

@Jan 
THX... also gerat music. But I think not the islanders produced it... ;-)
