Khalid Nabi cemetery (cemetery of the Prophet Khaled) is a cemetery in northeastern Iran's Golestan province near the border with Turkmenistan, roughly 40 miles (64 km) northeast of Gonbad-e Kavous city, in the Gokcheh Dagh hills of Turkmen Sahra.

Near the tomb of Khalid Nabi, there is another tomb called Alam Baba. This tomb is located in a place higher than Khalid Nabi. There is another tomb in this place called Ata Shepherd.

This area is very beautiful in the spring. A region with many hills and lush greenery is very beautiful. I went to this area with a climbing group. But I separated them and started shooting. The weather was very good, and afternoon light helped record a good picture. I moved a little around the tomb to get a proper composition. Eventually I found this place for shooting.

For this photo, I used Hasselblad 500C/M and Carl Zeiss Planar 80/2.8 CF lens. The image recorded, with aperture 16 and shutter speed 1/4 seconds on Konica Centuria 100 color negative 120 roll film.
