Zanjan is the capital of Zanjan Province in northwestern Iran. It is 298 km north-west of Tehran on the main highway to Tabriz and Turkey and approximately 125 km from the Caspian Sea. Zanjan is known for its beautiful handcrafts such as knives, traditional sandals, called charoogh, and malileh, a handcraft made with silver wires.

This is another picture of Zanjan province. An area that is my favorite. I'm always interested in natural shapes. Large rocks can be seen in various forms due to changes in weather conditions. Some of them are separated from the mountains. And deformed by natural erosion.

The large stone in this picture was on the slope of a hill. And in particular, it was polished by the weather. I walked away a little of it, and I used a normal lens. I used Nikkor-W 150/5.6 on Panoral 45 camera and got attached a Hoya red filter on the lens, then shoot by 1/15sec at f22 on Ilford FP4 PLUS 9x12cm sheet film.
