Stars above Volcano   -  By: Babak A. Tafreshi

Iran is a mountainous country. One of my favorite mountains on the planet is Mt Damavand, an impressive symmetrical volcano in the Alborz Mountains. At about 5670 meters (~18600ft) high it is the highest peak in the Middle East. The color contrast on this mid-night view was fantastic. The moonlit snow-covered volcano and the road-lit cliff, illuminated by passing cars on Haraz road connecting Tehran to the Caspian Sea. As I was framing the image the cliff resembled a transect that reveals the magma underneath the mountain. Damavand is a live volcano but has been silent for thousands of years.
