Iran - September 24th, 2009

This orthorectified image shows part of the province of Kerman, in southeastern Iran. Many of the ridges visible here reach heights of about 1600 meters.

The ridges of Kerman province are the continuation of Iran’s central mountain ranges, which extend from Azarbaijan, branch out across the country’s central plateau, and terminate in Baluchestan.

Several small towns can also be seen at the foot of the mountains in the lower left corner. The largest of these is Zarand, with a population of about 30,000 people.
