Every winter, in the Nordic lands, harsh conditions and extreme temperatures reveal the true power of nature. From the first snowfall, the great outdoors instantly become quieter.
And then comes the deafening silence as this frozen land at the end of the world falls into a deep slumber. The winter here is often a lot harsher than the cold seasons elsewhere in the world. The days become long and dark, sometimes very dark. This tranquil and minimalist landscape offers a look at beauty in its purest form, and, in its stillness, presents the opportunity to forge a deeper connection with the natural world and to find peace at last.
