Taleghan is a county in Alborz Province in Iran. The area is famous for sunny summers and cold winters. It is located in the resort area of the Alborz mountain range and 120 kilometers northwest of Tehran. Taleghan city due to being in the middle Alborz Mountains, has a mountain climate and bungalow. For this reason has a seasonal population, and in the summer its population to more than 12 thousand persons.

Taleghan district is divided into three important parts. Upper Taleghan, Middle Taleghan and Lower Taleghan. This division was more important in the distant past. This picture is from the upper part of Taleghan. In the lower part of Taleghan, there is a beautiful lake and dam of Taleghan. The upper part of Taleghan is covered with a beautiful mountainous and forested area. I tried to show the beauty of this area by using a wide lens.

For this photo, I used Schneider Super Angulon 47/5.6 XL on Panoral 45 camera. Then add a Hasselblad roll film back by a Hasselblad to Graflok adapter to back part of camera, then shoot by 1/8sec at f22 on Fuji Velvia 50 roll film.
