1)Tell us a little about this photo?
Travelling to Faroe Islands during the winter was one of the craziest experiences I’ve ever been through. A lot of tourists would visit the islands during the other seasons mainly because of the erratic weather during winter. Conditions were extremely unpredictable, it could hail, rain, snow and be sunny all within a span of 30 minutes which made hiking to some of the more difficult spots extremely dangerous. Visiting the Drangarnir sea stacks was one of my bucket lists locations since i started photography and travelling all the way from Singapore, I wasn’t going to let anything get in my way. However, on my second last day I was met with yet another obstacle. The hiking trail was not open to public during the winter. I was really bummed out by this but decided not to give up so i reached out to local hiking guides in Faroe Islands and one of the guides convinced the landlord of the hike to open the trail just for my friend and i. It was such a surreal experience because the 2.5h hike was so smooth, we didn’t experience any rain or 50km/h winds like the rest of the other days we were on the islands and i finally got to see the sea stacks up close. Since sunlight hours during winter on the Islands are very short (~4h) we practically spent the whole day just shooting everything we could at Drangarnir and even got to fly my drone without any interruption from the winds. Definitely one of my favourite photos that I’ve ever shot, and one that is not only visually aesthetic but a reminder as to why I should never give up even in the face of adversities.
