Kharanaq Abandoned Mud City

This empty room is part of a huge construction, very much alike a giant sand castle, holding litteraly hundreds of abandonned rooms. Apparently built around a thousand years ago it is one of the only remaining “mud cities” in Iran, and used to be the home of several hundered inhabitants. Today only one family is still livng there.

    Stunning image! I really love the effect you created with the lighting from above. It gives the photograph an almost meditative feel. Great work!
