Activity on the rise, at least that’s what it recently looked like, on the other side of our sound. The volcano of Kalsoy. Nature’s trick of clouds and light. Obviously, there are no volcanoes in the Faroe Islands, not anymore, whereas things used to be profoundly different in times immemorial. The Faroe Islands are of volcanic origin, geologists assume that the archipelago was built some 55 million years ago, by a vast number of volcanic eruptions, tectonic movements and the power of glacial and interglacial periods. The islands: Towering giant slices of tiered basalt, folded and molded layers of rock, bare or covered with grass, accompanied by fjords and sounds. Geology visible all around.
