Day 6 and 7

The last two days were already there… on day 6 we got up at 2:30 AM and left the hotel at 3 AM to catch the sunrise – which didn’t really happen. Around 3:30 we were stopped in a tunnel and our tour guide had to do an alcohol test. When we told the police-guy that we were hoping for some sun (I mean – we were trying to get pics of a SUNRISE). For a moment he looked at us as if he was about to send us to a mental hospital, then he started to laugh and said ‚Sun? Why did you come to Faroer then?‘ At breakfast we were still laughing about that. Once arrived at destination we got into position but there were too many clouds for a real sunrise. We saw the sun for about 5 seconds. It was still a very impressive spot. After several hours we got back to the hotel for breakfast and then we stayed there till 4 PM when the reain was supposed to lighten up. We went back to Saksun and even if we had shorts showers in between we were finally able to take our pics there. Unfortunately we missed a beautiful rainbow by about 15 minutes. From there we went to tidal pools for sunset but once again the photo session didn’t turn out as planned…
The last day we did some sightseeing too but had several photosessions in different spots too. And then that day was over as well and we had to pack because we had to leave at 6 AM on the last day because our flight was at 9:30AM and we still have to drive for over one hour. I found the Faroer Islands very interesting. There are beautiful spots there but it is becoming a hot spot for photographers and the people on Faroer fear that they will become a second Iceland. I hope that this won’t happen…
