That’s a reeeeeally wide angle shot of a fairly familiar place to a lot of folks here. The photo makes it look like a small island, but really it’s just a minor (if really remote) part of a larger island roughly midway between Scotland and Iceland.
I do wonder what life is like in such a remote location.
ETA: Oh. From the [Wikipedia entry](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G%C3%A1sadalur):
> In order to reach any of the other villages, they had to take the strenuous route over mountains more than 400 metres high. This explains why the village population has become smaller and smaller. In 2002 there were only sixteen people living in Gásadalur, and several of the houses stand empty today. It had a population of 18 in 2012.
> In 2004 a tunnel was blasted through the rock, and it is possible to drive through by car. The residents hope this will mean that the village population will increase again. There are good opportunities for farming, and the same number of fields as in Bøur, but here only a few are royal estate. Most of them are freehold land.
Seems like a great place to go if you don’t mind North Sea winters and *really* wanted to get away from it all (like, get away from everything and everyone who might be looking for you!).
