Brief encounters

The Faroe islands are a chain of islands located far out in the middle of the Atlantic ocean. It was hard to reach them until only a decade ago- nowadays they are only a few hours flight away from Copenhagen in Denmark. If the conditions allow your flight to land, that is.

The weather on the Faroe islands is the wildest I have ever encountered, but due to their location, it rarely gets really cold. Therefore in winter, most of the days are very stormy and rainy- but snow is a rather rare sight.

That's why I felt like I was in heaven during a trip in March some years ago, when I woke up to a winter wonderland. Many roads were blocked because of snowdrifts and icy conditions. But I managed to make it to this fantastic place above one of my favorite fjords. After pushing my way to the peak through waist deep snow, I found my perfect composition in this pristine snow line.

The elements aligned after a few cold hours when a new snowstorm drifted in. After returning from this shooting session, temperatures started rising again. The snow quickly melted and only a day later the islands were stripped of their white dress.

A moment of joy was had!
