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.

The Hyrcanian forests are a zone of lush lowland and montane forests covering about 55,000 square kilometres near the shores of the Caspian Sea in Iran and Azerbaijan. In Iran, the Hyrcanian ecoregion comprises a long strip along the southern coast of the Caspian Sea and the northern slopes of the Alborz mountains.

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 1/4sec at f22 on Ilford FP4 PLUS 4x5in sheet film.
