This day was a terrible day in Faroe Islands, like each one of the days I spent there : rain, wind, cold ... But you know, sometimes you've got luck, and that's exactly what happened here. I was in the car, eating a slice of cheap stale bread with the worst salami ever I ever tasted, when the sun started to show. I took my gear, walked down the cliff and found this wonderful little waterfall enlightened by the few sunbeams available, with a breathtaking view on the village of Vidareidi and its fjord. A typical Faroese landscape with a great light and foreground was exactly what I wanted to photograph. A few clicks and it was in the box ... I hope you will enjoy it!
Born in Marseille, south of France, I have been attracted by nature and its magical ambiances since I am a child. In 2007, after a one month road-trip through Scandinavia, my interest for this part of the world and for photography begin to appear. The gorgeous landscapes of the Norwegian fjords, the Lofoten islands and the polar regions as well as the unforgettable arctic lights will lead me to live a couple of months in Tromso¸, northern Norway, in 2011-12. There, the passion I have for photography becomes overactive.
Very keen on travelling, adventures and discoveries, my passion for landscape photography naturally opens up to the human being which is also, like it or not, part of this natural equilibrium I cherish so much. And that's how I am paying my tribute to the beauty of our planet through photography.
Photoburst is a photo of the day contest focusing on Travel Photography.
Everyday (from the 1st until the 28th), among all images uploaded by our contributors, we publish a photo of the day (POTD).
Every week (on the 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th), among all POTDs of the preceding week, we select a photo of the week (POTW).
On the 30th we select the best POTW as photo of the month (POTM).
From May 2015 onwards we will cease to award gift certificates to Kiva and guest editorship invitations to our POTM winners. However, occasionally we may accept/address guest editorship proposals, as we strongly believe they are a great way of further involving photographers with Photoburst. Interested? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

... as long as there's an advanced Maths course in a (not necessarily) nearby country. He's known for pushing friends into the most expensive photographic equipment... several family inheritances have been wasted, but they often acknowledge his smart advices. Owner of a clinical eye, he can spot perfection amidst chaos as easily as a small imperfection on a perfect photo. He's also an occasional stork stalker and, above all, a caring father of two beautiful children. Gastão's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
... give us a hand. He's our Computer Science genius and is currently addicted to photographing cats. He's a natural born optimist who makes a joke out of anything... don't mess with his Toyota though. Eventually, his stocks will rise from death and he'll invest in livestock and vineyards. He's got highly trained fingers either playing the piano or shortcutting photoshop. We hope he'll stick around after marrying his college sweetheart. In the mean time, he'll dissect every submitted photograph into binary code. Pedro's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
... would only be true if reading travel, geographic and surfing books/magazines accounted some mileage. He checks his e-mail every 2 minutes and he's often seen going cold-turkey when offline. Still divided between several walks of life, he strongly believes in Murphy's law "If anything can go wrong, it will". Photography plays a huge role in his life, at least judging by his conversation topics. Gray hair will eventually take the better of him. Pedro's current location: Covilhã, Portugal.
