Hello Saeed,
What a fabulous Blue day over Alamoot. Magnificent landscape, almost unreal.The water seems so calm, time seems to rest.
It's like an invitation to a dream. Thanks a lot
Best regards

Hello Saeed,
A lovely place, and I will think the altitude is quite high as you have more snow that we have this time of year!
A wonderful sky is nicely reflected in this well composed image!

Hi Saeed,
Beautiful picture with great colours. The composition and the pov are great. Great reflection of the blue sky, clouds and snowy mountaintops.

Hi Saeed,
You keep on amazing me with these very beautiful photos of your country. If you were not on this site, we would not know what natural beauty Iran has to offer.
The fact that the sky is not clear, but covered with the hight elevated clouds makes the photo, for me, perfect. The slight ripple in the water has created a wonderful distorted reflection. The clarity and details in the entire photo are perfect.
This looks like a great area to roam in.

Hello Saeed,
wow!! So very beautiful! The color is amazing and love those reflectins, and the ripples in the water...beautiful white mountains. TFS

Ciao Saeed, fascinating reflections in a superb mountain view, wonderful colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Saeed

what a wonderful December day with great clouds and reflections. It is so very calming and beautiful.


That's sooooo wonderful, Saeed,
what a beautiful view and the sky is marvelous, also the reflection on the water.
I love to visit Iran - must be great - the nature so fresh and clear, the culture so interesting - bye - until some day ... I hope ...

Hi Saeed,
A beautiful landscape scene. A well captured reflection. Colors and clarity look superb. Nice shot.

Hello Saeed

Another beautiful capture this Winter scene.
Wonderful reflections with lovely sharpness and detail.
The colours are deep and well saturated.
Nicely composed.


A very nice piece again from Your "winter lake" series. Absolutely perfect pic, no OE on the white parts at all. Bravo.
Yours, László

Salam Saeed
It has been a long time and i wonder why you no more bring beautiful Mazichal and rest of Iran to TN members. I hope you are fine and life is just busy.
Saeed,I went back to unearth this beautiful jewel from your collection ...this had to be a "blue day" altogether....for the predominant shades of blue in this serene scene is both rich and subtle.The white adds a beautiful contrast and the lake gives the whole composition a dramatic effect.
It must have been a breathtaking view and looking at this scene presented with a very fine PoV one is able to truly imbibe the feeling you would have got.
Look forward to more of your works in 2009 and May this year be one of peace and health to you and family

Hi Saeed
Thank you for your picture. If I think about Iran I see deserts and I feel hot so it is wonderful that you've allowed me to see different side of your country.
Your picture is beautiful, with nice composition, colours and excellent sharpness. I also can feel the temperature - I suppose it was quite chilly.
Thanks for sharing
