The word Norooz, means “New Day”, and the primal origin of the festivities lies in the universal rhythms of the earth and nature. The earth, in its movement on an elliptical path around the sun experiences four important events: Winter Solstice (longest night of the year), Summer Solstice (longest day of the year), and the two equinoxes (when day and night are equal in length). In Northern Hemisphere, when the earth moves from the winter solstice toward the summer solstice, in the middle of the way, it faces the spring equinox.

I really like the composition, from a distance it looks like a big ancient eye with black kajal... Eye-catching! Great sky and colours in the stonework, perfect symmetry. Good work!
Have a good weekend!
