• I loved mapping out this place from the micro to the macro 😍😍 (you might need to zoom in to see the detail 🔍) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It was a lot of fun experimenting with the different scales to capture this incredible place. I think this is now one of my favourite layouts of the Faroe Islands because it showcases the versatility of mapping and why I love to create maps to tell stories! Yep I’m obsessed!
Day two at the Faroe Islands was spent hiking to Drangarnir! A 6 hour hike that takes you to these two incredible sea stacks. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We started the hike excited and optimistic but that slowly changed as the weather turned, we got whited out and then had to walk in the rain for four hours. You can see this change in the before and after video.
