Kallur Lighthouse

From a northern promontory on the Faroe island of Kalsoy, the Kallur lighthouse boasts a panoramic view of the sea and neighboring islands. About a hundred people inhabit four villages on remote Kalsoy, one of 18 islands making up the North Atlantic archipelago. Sieuw’s picture recently appeared in Your Shot's Daily Dozen.
