We began our day with a hike to the fjell Klakkur, to enjoy an overview of Klaksvík. Sadly, the fog spoiled the view from the top, but from my short experience of the weather I made sure to shoot a pano at any given opportunity. However, it means I cannot present a 360 degrees pano of the landsacpe, so you'll have to endure 2 panos of the view. Luckily, the weather changed for the better later in the day, which was of great significance for me - more of that later!

Pano made from 46 HF pics (RAW) in 2 rows, 50 mm, iso-100, 1/250 sec, f/7,1, developed in DPP (daylight, neutral, ALO off, moderate sharpness), stitched in PTGui pro, minor contrast adjustment, downscaling and sharpening in Irfanview.

Deinen Faröer Panos sind eine Wucht - landschaftlich einmalig.

Oh Mann! I never made it there. On my way to Iceland I was "stranded" in these island group for - if I remember correctly - three days (I went with Smyril Lines). However going by bike I never made it that far north ...

Very nice and very impressive also the comparison with the last pano of HJB.

I think that everyone should boycot visiting the Faroe islands until the native people stop the massive, horrible kill of whales. As a vote of protest I would like to give no points although of course the pano is as good as perfect.
