The Darabad river in the northeast of Tehran originate from the Tochal ridge mountain. Around the river due to high humidity, in the past was a place full of natural trees. Darabad means a place full of trees. The height of Darabad River, is approximately 1700m at the beginning of the route, and at the peak of 3160 meters.

This is an image, which I am interested in composing. Because there is a balance between near and far components. I tried to show the snow-covered rocks in the foreground a little bigger. So I got a little closer to them. Darabad peak is easily visible on the upper left. The stone wall on the right and the trees give a somewhat beautiful image.

I used the Panoral 45 camera and Schneider Super Angulon 90/5.6 lens. The image recorded, with aperture 22 and shutter speed 1/4 seconds on Ilford FP4 9x12cm sheet film. I used Hoya red filter.
