Science fiction setting. An aquanaut rising from another world, enveloped in odd-looking cloud formations, strange colors and surreal light. That day, commercial diver and photographer Ingi Sørensen is just about to return from another Tjørnuvík dive. Submerged? Ingi: „A magnificent and peaceful place composed of impressive drop-offs, vibrant kelp forests and intriguing marine life.“
Diving in the Faroe Islands: Water temperature between 6 and 10 degrees Celsius, powerful currents, strong winds and changes in weather all the time. Visibility is best in the wintertime – up to 30 meters. Unveiled: A hidden world full of sea cucumbers, starfish, sea urchins, horse mussels and shrimp.
Unspoiled seabed, stunning grottos. Ingi (1409 dives) knows many sites. And yet, he keeps coming back for more. Because there’s always something new to be discovered. The same applies to Tjørnuvík, the northernmost spot on Streymoy, sea stacks Risin og Kellingin within sight. By the way: 15 years ago, Ingi put on a diving suit for the very first time. Fish ballet, bubble fanfare and algae anniversary cake. My Faroe Islands says: Congratulations, Ingi! And thank you for introducing us to Tjørnuvík’s Small Sea Anemone and the Capricious Sea Lemmon. Great pictures. Great creatures.
