Saksun, Faroe Islands

Saksun

Saksun is a village near the northwestern coast of the island of Streymoy. It lies in the bottom of what used to be an inlet of the sea, surrounded by high mountains. The inlet formed a good deep natural harbor, until a storm blocked it with sand. The old harbur became an inaccessible seawater lagoon, only accessible by small boats on high tide.

One of my favorite places in the Faroe Islands.
