Forest trees of Mazandaran
Picture ID: 10581 - Order
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 is an image of old forest trees that was photographed in Shirgah area. The forests of Mazandaran province are usually very dense and it is difficult to photograph them with a good composition. But in this area there is a suitable space for sunlight. Therefore, a suitable combination of light and shadow is created.
I used Schneider Symmar-S 150/5.6 on Panoral 45 camera and got attached a Hoya red filter on the lens, then shoot by 1/2sec at f22 on Ilford FP4 PLUS 9x12cm sheet film.
