Faroe Islands #1

Location  Faroe Islands

The Faroe Islands, or simply the Faroes or Faeroes (Faroese: Føroyar), are a North Atlantic archipelago located 320 kilometres (200 mi) north-northwest of Scotland, and about halfway between Norway and Iceland. Like Greenland, it is a constituent country of the Kingdom of Denmark. The islands have a total area of about 1,400 square kilometres (540 sq mi) with a population of 52,703 as of September 2020.

The terrain is rugged; the climate is subpolar oceanic climate - windy, wet, cloudy, and cool. Temperatures average above freezing throughout the year because of the Gulf Stream. As a result of the moderation and the northerly latitude, summers normally hover around 12 °C (54 °F). Average temperatures are 5 °C (41 °F) in winter. The northerly latitude location also results in perpetual civil twilight during summer nights and very short winter days.

Interesting pic. It appears that lock-down has stopped that sheep from getting out to the shearers...

Sheeps roams free over there. :D

I think sheep like to ramble rather than roam....:)
