564. On the Faroe Islands and Iceland you can often see beautiful, low-hanging clouds.
Above this cloud you see distinct shadows, under the cloud soft filtered bluish light.
On the left the colour of the water is more intense because it reflects the blue sky, under the cloud the colour is more grey.
The mountains are sometimes described as layer cake.

560. Sunset over Shetland.
(Taken from the ferry Norröna of the Smyril Line)
August 18, 2006.
(Copyright: Henk Bakker)

Because I took this picture straight into the sun the persons became silhouettes. Still there is a bit of detail in the black, I achieved that by using a "reflection screen" In tomorrow's photograph you can see how.

Our summer trip by camper:
With the ferry from Hanstholm (DK) to the Faroe Islands and Iceland.
Three days on the Faroe Islands.
Four weeks in Iceland.
Back by ferry via Faroe and Shetland.
