Alamut is a regional in Qazvin province, which consists of two parts of the Western Alamut and East Alamut in the Alborz Mountains. This lush green area has long been inhabited by different tribes and has a long history of Iranian civilization and history. Hassan Sabbah castle and Evan Lake are among the most famous parts of the area.

This is a picture of a beautiful area of Alamout taken in a vertical panorama. Vertical panorama photography is usually very difficult due to its abnormality. It is difficult to find a suitable subject for this composition. I chose this subject because the side road at the bottom of the image goes to the sky. This can indicate a kind of spiritual thinking. The upward trajectory helps to articulate this proposition.

For this image, I used the Panoral 45 camera. I set my tripod in convenient location, and put my camera with Schneider Super Angulon 90/5.6 lens on it. I held the filter by hand in front of the lens. The lens was set at a hyperfocal distance, and the image recorded, with aperture 22 and shutter speed 1/8 seconds on Fuji Velvia 50 6x12cm roll film.
