The kind of picture taking that leaves damp and dirt on your camera lens, pics and video footage efficiently adorned with sea spray and tenacious salt water drops, an occurrence that starts with brilliant image sharpness and ends in shaky fuzziness. How it's done? Like that: Being onboard a Faroese fishing boat, waters between Kalsoy and the northern tip of Eysturoy, heading for Gjógv.
Take a look: The red ball of wool on the map below, that’s us. We have already been sailing through the waters of Funningsfjørður, as you can plainly see, passing this spot called Múlin (close to the little ruby red wool fiber boat position mark on the map). Status so far: camera fine. Pictures clockwise: map showing i.a. Kalsoy and the northern part of Eysturoy, the village of Gjógv as seen from our vessel and the rock formation of Múlin.
A little later, so to say around the stony „corner“ Múlin, that’s when the real fun begins. All of a sudden the kind of sea I like – the one in motion. Wind, waves, sun, straddle-legged fisherman at work posture and an all-embracing feeling of happiness. Sea foam on my camera lens? You bet. Also a thick, compelling salt water spot clouding the video footage. Another and yet another. Frankly speaking? At such a moment. Who cares!
