Sept 30th, 2017: Lighthouse
I like this, Kalsoy island and Kallur lighthouse in sunset light in the Faroe Islands.


National Geographic Magazine has opened its annual photo contest for 2017, with the deadline for submissions coming up on November 17. The Grand Prize Winner will receive $10,000, publication in National Geographic Magazine and a feature on National Geographic’s Instagram account. The folks at National Geographic were, once more, kind enough to let me choose among the contest entries so far for display here. The captions below were written by the individual photographers, and lightly edited for style.

That's an awesome pic.

An isolated island in an isolated group and you know you are far to the north when the solar panels are on the walls instead of the roof.

I tried for an inordinate amount of time to orient myself with the pic and various maps.
Is the viewpoint from southwest to northeast, with the two small offshore islets in the background? Or maybe not?
