Glory of the Night by MortezaSafataj

One of the best places on earth to observe milky way over unique natural springs is Badab sourt in Mazandaran Province, Iran.

Badab Sourt springs have been created over thousands of years as flowing water from two different mineral hot springs cooled and deposited carbonate minerals on the mountainside which have created orange, yellow and red colored shaped pool like staircase.

The first spring is salty which is considered to have medicinal properties, especially as a cure for rheumatism and some types of skin diseases. The second spring has a sour taste and is mainly orange due to the large iron oxide sediments at its outlet.

As you may see in the picture Badab Sourt springs are in danger of gradual erosion and eventual demise. However it has been changed a lot sine 10 years ago but national environmental groups are restoring the natural atmosphere of the site.

Badab Sourt was registered as Iran’s second natural site in 2008 and it’s one of the biggest salty natural springs in the world.

Angels are like diamonds. They can’t be made, you have to find them and I’ve found the last angel !!

With …Stanley Kubrick :
“How could we possibly appreciate the Mona Lisa if Leonardo had written at the bottom of the canvas: ‘The lady is smiling because she is hiding a secret from her lover.’ This would shackle the viewer to reality, and I don’t want this to happen to “my shots”.”

Towards the end of the world by JohnWright5

Driving down through southern Armenia, you have the impression you are going to the end of the world. This shot, with the sun having just set to the right of this scene, gives this impression. The only sign of humans is the TV tower. The hills and mountains beyond look towards Nagorno-Karabagh and Iran. The shot itself was taken just outside the city of Goris.
I hope you like.
