The Faroes – Klaksvik – around town

It is fascinating to see how these isolated fishing/whaling communities grew up in the Faroes and Iceland. They must have been tiny communities living in remote safe havens deep in fjords that have now blossomed into towns.

The Faroes – more of the rugged landscape.

Driving through the mountains and hills, with their scattered communities, or single dwellings, one is struck by the loneliness and beautiful bleakness of the place. It is incredibly picturesque.
