Mazandaran Province is one of the most densely populated provinces in Iran and has diverse natural resources, notably large reservoirs of oil and natural gas. The diverse nature of the province features plains, prairies, forests and rainforest stretching from the sandy beaches of the Caspian Sea to the rugged and snowcapped Alborz sierra, including Mount Damavand, one of the highest peaks and volcanos in Asia.

This mountain is in the path of Alam-Kuh peak. Alam-Kuh is one of the mountains of Kelardasht region. Alam-Kuh is a mountain in the Alborz mountain range in the north of Iran, Mazandaran Province, forming a peak of Takht-e Suleyman massif. I went to this area many years ago when I was younger. It has always been exciting for me to be higher than the height of the clouds. In this photo, this happened. The dark color of the mountain on the right was strange to me.

For this photo, I used my Hasselblad 500 C/M camera and Carl Zeiss Planar 80/f2,8 CF lens. I took this photo on my hand. Because I did not take a tripod with me. The image recorded with aperture 16 and shutter speed 1/15 seconds on Ilford FP4 film.
