The Darabad river in the northeast of Tehran originate from the Tochal ridge mountain. Around the river due to high humidity, in the past was a place full of natural trees. Darabad means a place full of trees. The height of Darabad River, is approximately 1700m at the beginning of the route, and at the peak of 3160 meters.

In the course of this river valley is located mountainous region with a river of clear water, springs, many waterfalls, slopes full of rocks and cliffs, and trees with lovely weather. Walking in the Darabad river always has been interesting to me. I've gone over and over in this area, for shooting. However, is always fascinating for me to visit this area. Because there are so many subjects for shooting in this area.

For this image I put the tripod in the river. The water temperature was cold in autumn. Occasionally, the wind blew and the trees were moving, you can see in the picture.

I used the Panoral 57 camera and Schneider Super Angulon 90/5.6 lens. The image recorded, with aperture 22 and shutter speed 4 seconds on 5x7in Forte No.2 paper negative.
