Photographer's Note

The salt lake that you see here is located about 90 kilometers south of Tehran,in Qom province.

Qom province has two large salt lakes,namely: Howz e Soltan Lake (in the shot),which can be seen from the Qom-Tehran freeway,and the larger Namak Lake further to the east.The "Namak" word means "Salt" in Persian language.

The Howz e Soltan Lake has 20 kilometers long and 15 kilometers wide and its surface is covered with salt.
Also it is almost 710 m above sea level,and its rate of rain is 120-100 mm per year.
There are some animals in this nature like rabbits,desert mouses,deers,snakes and many kinds of birds and ...


Every time that I see the lake,it's mysterious for me,with its strange and particular silence.

The shot is cropped from top and bottom.
The weather was cloudy and hazy in depth.
hope you like it.
