Windhelm Island

Island Windhelm, one of Faroe archipelago, Denmark. There is a story about a witch and a troll related this place but I have forgotten it. Anyway I wonder what happened to rest of it. Was it like that since the begin or something happened later.

This just makes me think of The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim. More so when you said witches and trolls! I'm pretty sure there is a place in the game called Windhelm of something similar to it.

Is Windhelm the local name, a translation, or something else? Because the official name seems to be Tindhólmur.

Maybe its a Danish name since those islands belongs to Denmark. Ah I didn't know there is a game like that. The legend was about either a witch and a troll or Troll mother and 2 Troll kids.

Wonder what is responsible for that lovely green colour? Is it moss or grass?

They have probably use some kind of filter to get such colours. It doesn't look natural. Look at the pictures on the wikipedia page and the colours looks more realistic.

I'm pretty certain it's grasses and other vascualar plants, Dean, not mosses. If I were to guess, I'd say that island is ~ 100m tall? (erm, nope, 262m according to the wiki Peter posted) It's not small, and it's pretty exposed; you wouldn't get a mossy covering like that over such a large space, nor in a space so exposed to coastal weather.

I really enjoy islands like this; rugged, windswept, beautiful and enduring Smile
