Rocks and clouds in Zanjan
Picture ID: 10572 - Order
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.
Both clouds and rocks are my favorite subjects. They usually appear in different shapes and forms. Shadows, light angles have amazing effects on their appearance. Even in different seasons and in the morning or afternoon, they can appear in different forms. This may be one of the main problems with landscape photography. But the light conditions of the subject in daylight are beyond the control of the photographer.
For this photo, 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.
