In December of 2019 I decided I’d had enough of the British winter and wanted to add some adventure… So I tasked myself to capture the essence of winter in a different country. With the promise of snow, I leapt at the chance to visit the Faroe Islands and I booked a next-day flight.

I arrived to a beautiful dusting of snow on the mountain peaks, and I fell in love with the country at first sight. Despite the small size, there is still so much to explore!
