TWO LEVELS OF AWESOME

Photographer’s Description: The lake is about 30m above sea level, the camera at 140m and the cliff facing it at 100m. But I ‘see’ the lake at about 100m.

As described above, the angle and location this photograph was taken from really enhances the dramatic difference between the two bodies of water (lake and ocean). This beautiful site is located in the Faroe Islands, a subarctic island group situated between the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, approximately halfway between Great Britain and Iceland. The Faroe Islands are a constituent country of the Kingdom of Denmark, along with Denmark proper and Greenland. The total area is approximately 1,400 square kilometers with a population of almost 50,000 (2010). [Source: Wikipedia]
