Silence is Iceland. A landscape.
From the quiet ices of Vatnajökulsþjóðgarður to the wild lands of Vestfirðir, Iceland is a vast territory where the basic elements of the Nature sprout and are constantly modified. A cold landscape where the silence has a central role. Far from being an empty place Iceland is a plenty island: volcanos, glaciers, falls, beaches or interior steep cliffs sleep for years, in silence. A silence that make the visitors believe that they are the firsts to arrive. A deceptive explorer illusion.
All of them wait to be waken, hoping to fill the silence again.
