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.

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.

305. Faer Oer landscape nr. 6.
The Far Oer-islands can be reached by ferry from northern Denmark. You can take your own transportation. We took a trip to Iceland in 1999 and had a stop of a few days on the Faer Oer. Very interesting. The trip can also be made by ferry from Aberdeen via the Shetland-Islands. And from Bergen in Norway.

Kumiko McKee is a Japanese contemporary artist based in the United States in Colorado who uses classical techniques to create realistic images that are partly abstract. Her paintings exhibit a high level of detail with finely rendered figures and complicated patterns. They are not only beautiful to look at, but contain individualized stories:

Friday night we were dining with friends, we talked about the Northern Lights. We did not know that at the same time it could be seen outside. What a pity we didn't see it. Here some I took in Iceland a few years ago:

61. I wanted to show a series of boats, but this picture of a small fishing town on the Faroe Islands has to be shown first. There is a nice story to tell about it. Alex the designer of this site sent a mail to Henrik Petersen of EchoEchoPlus Hosting (that is the Danish server of this site) Henrik, just by chance, looks at the picture that is shown under BACKGROUND. He gets a big surprise, because he knows the spot very well, his parents and ancestors grew up there and as a boy he spent lots of holidays rowing on the fiord.

The white light of the sun is being dispersed by the atmosphere.
With the blue wavelength the effect is the strongest, that's why the sky is blue.
