If you’re especially sensitive to wanderlust, exercise caution before clicking the play button. As if Iceland and the Faroe Islands aren’t already alluring, a little 4K drone footage is the fastest way to convince me to spend a chunk of change on a flight.
Doug Urquhart is a fellow Atlanta-based videographer. I’ve binge-watched a fair amount of Urquhart's amazing time-lapses, and his drone footage doesn’t disappoint. While his time-lapses are shot on a heavily modded rig, this travel video is just off the DJI Phantom 4 drone. The style isn’t especially saturated or processed like a lot of typical drone footage, so the killer camera moves speak for themselves.
The Faroe Islands look like a merger between the Scottish Highlands and the west coast of Ireland — a few shots look exactly like the Skellig Islands. Though I expect it won’t stay that way for long, the Faroe Islands still see relatively little tourism, especially compared with their Icelandic and Norwegian neighbors.
So excuse me while I book a flight before it becomes the next top tourism destination, and while there are hopefully still a few unique landscape photography spots to discover.
Have you made it out to the Faroe Islands?
