    After a 7km hike along a steep mountainside, I reached the edge of Vagar, one of the islands belonging to the Faroe Islands. Worth every step there and back. It makes you realize what we really are compared to these giant lands. Temporary occupants on a surface that will outlast us for generations to come. Time to connect with myself and with nature. To put all the hustle and bustle aside and hear my own voice for once.

    Gary, this just further confirms that the Faroes are on the top of my list of places to visit. I feel you truly represented scale well in this image. By photographing your subject where you did, it creates a highlighted line through the cliffs and back to your subject. What a great photo to remind us the feeling of being so small!
