When most people think about the Sicilian landscape their first thoughts
run to rocky mountains, stoney brown fields and eternal olive groves. Most
of Sicily does indeed correspond fairly closely to this image, much of the
time. But that's only part of it. There are also forests, streams, lakes
and (at least for a few months of the year) a few snow-capped mountains,
especially in the island's north-eastern regions, dominated by Mount Etna and the Nebrodi
Mountains. That's where most of these pictures were taken by photographer
Salvo Orlando. More can be seen on his website at sicilylandscape.com, where the images speak for themselves.
