Faroe Islands #2

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.

Looks so peaceful. Could live here away from it all.

It's nice there, but I would miss the sun and the trees. :) Also the square footage of living is quite small. If I were to choose a place to relocate I would be more likely to choose Iceland. :)

Wonderful area! I could live in a place like this but I would miss the trees. (: Once a Hungarian was asked what the weather was like there and he said on word: scandalous. :))

haha I can't really find the right word for weather over there. :) It was defintiely a bit hard to plan shooting when you're not certain what the weather would be on the other side of the mountain. :) But internet cams helped a little.
