18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Fortress

A rocky monument rises out of the dark cold sea. Its cliffs reach heights of almost 800m. Impenetrable land. Kalsoy is a treasure. A rare kind of landscape. King of the cliff lands. Spent the whole day there, documenting its greateness from thousands of different angles. Me and my old man, Wildlife Photographer Roberto Murta.
