I captured this image on my last visit to Ghapologh Salt Mine. This mine located about 180 Km. north-west of Oromiyeh city and 45 Km north of Khoy city. Combination of red Marls and grey Sands make very nice warm colours with each other.
I sharpened and saturated this image by software.
Enjoy it .....!
Thanks for your critiques.

Rarely do you see such a colorful ground loss of salt! Great gray - red color excavation against blue sky. Good POV and composition, nicely framed photo.

Incredible view with such unusual colors from the stone. It was worth to do a shot of it.
I also like the piece of shadow on the left side of the shot, giving a added variation.

Beautiful details of this contrasting colored rock.
The red colour of rocks is amazing.

Nice contrast with an angry red and a cool blue here. Those mountains look quite unique in their form and shape. Fascinating.

EstelleJ (921) 2013-03-11 21:24
Wow! I am speechless!! Never thought that something so bright red, of almost scarlet hue, could be somewhere a natural color of Earth's surface. Looks like a surface of another planet to me!
Thank you for posting this amazing image!

The tight frame is putting the hill in evidence. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the hill. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colours. Have a nice day.
marina7 (8053) 2013-04-02 13:10
is it a picture from Mars? The red planet, you know))
Unbelievable colors and textures, I need to book a ticket there)) Great capture!
CLODO (30060) 2013-04-04 6:07
Absolutly fabulous! incredible colors of the rocks washed by the rain, and I also like the small white clouds in the blue sky.

mi era sfuggita questa tua bella immagine nella quale eccellono la semplicità ed i colori forti e contrastanti.
Ottima l'illumionazione e ben calibrata la saturazione.
Un ottimo scatto che è una bella testimonianze di un angolo del tuo paese.
Ciao e buona giornata
