Photographer's Note

I have just came back from absolutely unforgettable trip to Iran. It is fantastic place to visit with so much to offer - great nature, ancient culture and one of the most friendliest and kindest people I've met.

This photo was taken at Esfahan Airport where I was rewarded with fantastic dramatic light and beautiful rainbow.

Esfahan is one of the most romantic places I've ever visited. It is one of the oldest cities of Iran with the 1,001,000 population located 414 km south of Tehran and 481 km north of Shiraz. This 2500 years old city served as Persia's capital from 1598 to 1722.

Esfahan was a crossroad of international trade and diplomacy, and therefore was a kaleidoscope of resident languages, religions, and customs. The city is known for its silver filigree and metal work. This city is renowned not only for the abundance of great historical monuments, but also for its Life-Giving River, The Zayandeh-Rood, which has given the city an original beauty and a fertile land. Esfahan is filled with old gardens and some of the best sights in Iran.
