The Faroe Islands are not hard to fall in love with – here are my best photos from my recent trip to the Faroe Islands to convince you that it’s true!
You might think, the Faroe Islands are not hard to fall in love with – and you are right. And yet, I can’t wait to show you my photos of the Faroe Islands to convince you anyways! The Faroe Islands were one of my favourite places to photograph this year so far, not only because the weather jods were generous with us for most of the week, but also because every little detail in the towns, villages and landscapes seemed larger than life to me!
So take a look at these 30 photos of the Faroe Islands and tell me: How could you resist?
