The Faroe islands are located just inside the area where all weather systems that affect Europe are getting brewed up. This results in extreme weather conditions many times each year.

From all places that I know, these islands are the most capricious when it comes to harsh shooting conditions. Which then again, makes them ideal to capture remarkable light.

And so I happened to be standing on a peak in gale force winds once again. Hoping for the wind to blow some little hole in the thick clouds and let the sun blast through it. Conditions like these are not easy to shoot, but for those that endure the wind and rain, they offer moments of absolute joy!

I am a sucker for god rays and I chase them whenever I can. I sent my drone up and realized it was not a good idea when I suddenly saw the sky on the remote controller. Wind gusts were playing pingpong with my flying camera device.

Long story short: somehow I managed to capture enough shots to stitch this panoramic image from them. And I also managed to hand catch the drone before it could crash into some rocks.

The elements had aligned once more.

A moment of joy was had!
