Iran - September 24th, 2009

Iran is one of the most mountainous countries in the world. Its geography consists of rugged mountain ranges, particularly in the west, that separate flatter basins and plateaux. This orthorectified image exemplifies the craggy peaks of a  long range of mountains in the province of South Khorasan, in eastern Iran.

The summits reach heights of 2000 meters, above sea level, while the steep slopes quickly slide down to a lower and flatter landscape at an elevation of about 800 meters. Patches of sand dunes can be observed at the foot of the slopes towards the lower left and at the top of the full image.
