Lasting Impression

Posted by
Darkelf Photography (Perth, Australia) on 1 July 2021 in Landscape & Rural.


Dramatic cliffs, moody weather, waterfalls and amazing nature of Faroes Islands definitely left many lasting impressions on us. The scenery is not dissimilar to Iceland in the way that there is always something new to find and see around every corner. So much packed into such a small area. This is in great contrast to Australia where we often have drive some fair distances between places. We found this beautiful spot only few hundred metres from where the previous photo was taken as we literally followed the guiding light and the road that you saw in the last post. It was an easy place to pick out as the waterfall was right alongside the road but it just looked too good to my eyes to pass on.

When we stopped, it was just a matter of find the right composition and I found that the waterfall stream formed a good diagonal line to take the eyes through the scene. Two smaller waterfalls at the top formed nice links to the mountain and it all just worked for me and for the concept that I had here. The clouds were moving very quickly over the peak and I took a number of shots with various levels of clouds cover. I decided early on that I wanted some clouds to be around the mountain as I though that it enhanced the mood. Based on the idea, I chose this particular frame to work further on in post processing.

I have postponed working on these photos from 2019 due to time restraints and also due to the lack of travel during the pandemic. Re-visiting and doing the processing work now has deepened my longing for travel even if it is just somewhere to the east coast of Australia. we have been able to explore some areas closer to home but the eternal desire to see other places around the world remains as strong as ever. Hopefully, we will return to some kind of normal in the not too far away future as there is still much to see and do. In the meantime, I hope you are all keeping well and staying safe, no matter where you are around the world.
