Zanjan is the capital of Zanjan Province in northwestern Iran. It is 298 km north-west of Tehran on the main highway to Tabriz and Turkey and approximately 125 km from the Caspian Sea. Zanjan is known for its beautiful handcrafts such as knives, traditional sandals, called charoogh, and malileh, a handcraft made with silver wires. But landscapes around it is very impressive. For this image, I moved early in the morning from Tehran. Meteorological was predicted partially cloudy weather in mid-day. Due to the large extent the region, I quickly began shooting. For this photo, I used Schneider Super Angulon 47/5.6 XL on Panoral 45 camera and got attached a red filter on the lens, then shoot by 1/4sec at f22 on Ilford FP4 PLUS 4x5in film.
