Photographer's Note

The Mount Damavand is seen in this shot surrounded by the white clouds which often accompany it.

It is also the growing season of the big red poppies in Lar Valley.

Damavand is the roof of Iran (the highest peak: 5671 m) and a potentially active volcano. The mountain is located near the southern coast of the Caspian Sea, Mazandaran province and 66 kilometres (41 miles) northeast of Tehran. There are at least 16 known routes to the summit which have different difficulties. Some of them are very dangerous and requires rock climbing. The most popular route is the Southern Route.

Damavand also has a special place in Persian mythology, folklore and literature.
