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.

A forest park has been created in the hills of Darabad mountain. This photo was taken in this area. The most trees in this forest park are pine trees. I roamed the hills a bit to find the right composition of trees. I took several photos in this area, this is one of them.

For this image, I used my Hasselblad 500 C/M camera and Carl Zeiss Planar 80/f2.8 CF lens. I used of Hoya red filter for this image. The image recorded with aperture 22 and shutter speed 1/15 seconds on Ilford FP4 120 roll film.
