The Water is Wide, Akraberg

This image was taken on the most southern point of the Faroe Islands looking south to the island of North Rona in the Outer Hebrides, the closest neighbor of the archipelago.

This image has become one of my personal favourites from the #landofmaybe, a 3 year documentary project on the Faroes. It's a place of ever changing light, dramatic weather, and friendly people whose warmth constantly takes me surprise. It reminds me of home.
