It's been a long time
seems like a lifetime
To be where we are
take a little tumble,fall and maybe stumble
Now we've gone so far
all along the highways of the sun

Title and poem by Andrew latimer and susan Hoover: Camel,Rain Dances Album,1977

In the north of Iran,in Gilan province,after the Syahkal city you must go towards Deylaman,about 55 Km,through Alborz mountains,the location in the shot has a heights almost more than 3000 m (above the sea level).
The road is full of forest,villages,tea hills and rice fields,too.
more than 70 percent of the nature around the road is virgin and pure and very beautiful.

I used only "Neat Image",the rest is real.Hope you like it.

Hi Mohammad
Good to see a post from you again! This is a very nice and moody shot, nearly monotone. I like the layers in here as well. Maybe just open-up the shaddows in the bottom a bit.
Sorry, my dimes are all spent.

  • Great

Beautiful shot, Mohammad. I like all the different layers in the mountains, and especially in the clouds - the front ones almost look 3-dimensional. Good clarity. Well captured.
