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 image of Zanjan region. This area is really my favorite. I think the shape of the rocks is very suitable for black and white photography. The shadows, light and shape of the stones sometimes form very beautiful shapes. Although I went to this area several times to take pictures, I still think I have to go there again.

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 1/8sec at f22 on Ilford FP4 PLUS 9x12cm sheet film.
