Gásadalur B/W [Explored 31.03.12]

    Newer Older

    Since I moved back to the Faroe Islands almost 3 years ago and took up photography, I've been avoiding this shot because it's perhaps one of the most obvious faroese scenes.
    This morning however, I went to pick up my brother at the aiport and while I was waiting, I drove to the village of Gásadalur, which only takes about 10 minutes, and quickly took a couple of shots, thinking that it could make an interesting B/W photo. Something I've recently started dabbling with - and finding extremely difficult.
    So here it is, Gásadalur, and now I'm hooked. Going back soon.

    I recommend viewing this photo large (press L)

    Thank you for viewing and for any comments.

      Awesome! I'm always curious about how people end up where they do: How they ended up in Mobile if they are from somewhere in Utah, for example, or how a village came to be high on a cliff, instead of nestled close to the coast like so many others are. (Wait! Wait! I can guess. They were taking a walk, and she said, "Oh, baby! Look at the waterfall! Wouldn't that be a lovely view? And he agreed, so they built their house as close to it as they could..)
