I took this photo above Karkas peak late in 2011. Karkas is the highest peak of Esfahan province. Fortunately it was superb all over Iran & the sky was so blue! However climbing to the the highest peak of Karkas Mountains that is 3895m, among about 1 meters of snow was really adventurous! Imagine what happened on the top! I could see Damavand (the highest point of Iran) from Karkas peak that is about 300 km far from there! Full story at: http://msol.ir/pages/view/pageid/37/lang/en
