This is another view from Salt Lake in Dasht-e Kavir when that is wet,Dasht-e Kavir also known as Kavir-e Namak or Great Salt Desert is a large desert laying in the middle of the Iranian Plateau.
In the west of the desert, a salt lake called Darya-che Namak (1800 km²) can be found. It contains some large salt plates in a mosaic-like shape. It is part of a 4,000 km² protected ecological zone, the Kavir

A beautiful photo of this impressive place, Mohammad. The surface of the salt lake and the blend of textures and reflections makes for a quite absorbing photographical subject, and the sort of low-key light gives a good moody element to this well-contrasted shot.

Hi Mohammad, this looks a dark and foreboding place, but the blue sky shining in the wet salt plates gives it a such a lift. Wonderfully captured, quite impressive, thank you,

Hi Mohammad, The reflection on the gird shallow water show a nice effect with this low PoV picture. I like the grand view to the water, the sky and the blurred view of the mountains in distance. I enjoy the quiet and peaceful mood in this image.
R2D2 (180) 2006-05-21 18:29
Distance, Silence, Calmness and the taste of salt:)
These are my feelings looking at this wondeful photo.

It's rare to see a reflection in a landscape photo off something other that the water, and this is really beautiful. You've framed it really well to capture the varied light and the varied textures. Nice clouds help a lot. It's clearly a unique place, and you've brought it to us well! Regards, Ken.

Thanks and regards, Gerrit
riclopes (35577) 2006-05-22 6:12
Amzing shot of this amazing and mysterious place. I love the symetry of the image, with the reflection of the cloudy sky. A magic lighting and atmosphere captured in here, as in most of your work. Congratulations once more, my friend!
jhm (140689) 2006-05-22 8:44
Hi my friend Mohammad,
It's superb, what a great picture of these salt plain, the reflection is outstanding lovely, you make again a very great progression with this picture.
Very well done!
Burnham (2428) 2006-05-22 11:02
Wonderful sky and reflections! Usually I like when the sky has the largest amount of space in landscape pictures, but not when the foreground is as interesting as this. Very nice, the colours are beautiful too.
veronika (6052) 2006-05-22 13:04
Perfect shot Mohammad, the reflection is really wonderful as well as the composition.
How salty is that lake? If i jump there, would it "hold me" above the water level? :)
babri (422) 2006-05-22 15:57
Beautiful shot of salt lake!
Texture of salt and reflection are interesting, Mohammad.
Thanks for introducing such places to the world.
Amirsun (2122) 2006-05-22 16:37
Very nice shot with great composition. I like the nice reflect of sky in salte lake... Tanks for posting such great shots from Kavir national park.
tcht (7565) 2006-05-22 17:30
Lovely reflection... that horizon's so straight and great textures of salt. The exposure's also spot on, great lighting all the way!
avigur_11 (22077) 2006-05-22 23:18
I like this wonderful soft cloud that decorates your picture twice - up and down. Wonderful reflection and beauti image.
Kenny10pin (19301) 2006-05-23 1:35
very ncie clouds reflected in the sea, very nice composition and repetition of the clouds too, well done

hello, this is great Mohammad,exellent colour, great quaility, this photo invites us directly to see this place, full of heart my dear
oochappan (16688) 2006-05-23 10:25
Yuor prior one was also a beautiful sunset but this one got something special here with the texturing and the reflection in the salt lake. The dominating blue with gradiants light and shadow to the dark horizont gives a mysterious isolated mood.
Well done Mohammad

Rien à dire, seulement regarder!!
alvaraalto (6177) 2006-05-23 18:09
Not much to say about this picture. Not only a salty but also a perfect reflection. I like the simplicity of this picture.
parbo (11092) 2006-05-23 20:14
Variant place, great shot ! Lights and shadows are very different ! It must be one of very difficult shot. Congratulations.
jrj (34841) 2006-05-24 7:09
A simple very effective sompo of this salt lake. Perfect setting of light for instroducing the place. As always very interesting too see those places in your country.
hdl (6995) 2006-05-24 7:41
Hi Mohammad. Good horizontal balance and pov; I like all the colours blue in it. It looks like a very desolate place; it looks like not much life is possible there. Nice shot and interesting note.
Jeppe (18654) 2006-05-25 14:24
I seen this kind of sights before - but never from this part of the world. You got this view with a very fine light as well - I like the reflections giving us the salty reminds at the best
