Veresk Star Trails

By: Amir H. Abolfath


Region: Middle East

Site: Alborz Mountains - Iran

Spot: Veresk

Date: September 2014


The motion of the sky (caused by the Earth rotation) is photographed in a long-exposure fisheye image where stars are trailed over a gorge in the Alborz Mountains of Iran. The bright light on the Veresk bridge illuminates the valley. The historic Veresk railway bridge (still in use) was constructed prior to the World War II by Germans. The bridge stands at 110 m over the gorge base. Amir Abolfath,
