The Faroe Islands is an isolated archipelago of 18 rocky, windswept, glacier-carved, and sparsely populated volcanic islands in the North Atlantic Ocean and at the doorstep of the Arctic. An autonomous government (since 1948) within the Kingdom of Denmark, roughly half way between Iceland and Norway, the islands rise sharply from the relentless sea, creating some of the most dramatic landscape in the northern hemisphere; tall mountains, steep cliffs, rocky shores, deep valleys, glacial lakes, and narrow fjords. Warm Gulf Stream waters mix with an influx of polar currents around the islands, creating a highly productive and dynamic marine ecosystem. As a result of this advantageous positioning, the Faroe Islands are by far the largest producer of seafood in the world. And, because of the intersection of warm and cold ocean currents, these relatively small islands in the middle of the ocean are impacted by ever-changing weather, offering up many opportunities for the patient photographer to capture the variable moods of the landscape. Connected by a network of roads, causeways, tunnels, bridges, and ferries, human settlement is found along the coastline wherever there is safe harbor.
