Photographer's Note

Zāyandé-Rūd or Zāyanderūd “life giver” also spelled as Zayandeh-Rood or Zayanderood, is the largest river in the central plateau of Iran.

The Zayandeh starts in the Zagros Mountains and flows 400 kilometres (200 mi) eastward before ending in the Gavkhouni swamp, a seasonal salt lake, southeast of Isfahan city. The Zayandeh has significant flow all year long, unlike many of Iran's rivers which are seasonal. The Zayandeh is spanned by many historical Safavid era bridges, and flows through many parks.


But, Zayandehrud haven't any flows now, is dry.
