Iran's Masal Province

rezarafizadeh

Contributor and drone pilot Rezerafizadeh created this stunning aerial view of the Masal province in Iran.  It's located in the northwest part of the country, very close to the Caspian Sea and not far from the border with Azerbaijan.  Unlike most of the country, the region is heavily forested.  Prepare to be amazed by the views through the clouds of the stunning rolling hills of the area, called by some (for reasons which will be apparent when you watch) the "Green Roof of Iran".

Masuleh: Ancient City

rezarafizadeh

Contributor Rezarafizadeh used a drone to create this remarkable aerial view of the ancient Iranian city of Masuleh.  It's located in the northwestern corner of the country, in the province of Gilan near the southern shore of the Caspian Sea.  The city was founded in the first century AD.  As you'll see in the video, it's literally built into a mountain.  For reasons that will be clear, it's been said in the town that "the yard of the building above is the roof of the building below".

Iran's Lake Urmia

Azinhaghighi

Lake Urmia is a saltwater lake in northern Iran.  It's near the northwesternmost corner of the country, with its northern end not far from the border with Turkey and the southern end not far from the Iraqi border.  It was once the sixth largest saltwater lake in the world.  However, due to damming in the area, the lake has shrunk to about 1/10 of its former size.  Contributor Zinhaghighi used a drone to create an amazing aerial view of this once-mighty body of water.
