Iran Photos Part VII: Takht-e Soleymān

Takht-e Soleymān (Persian: تخت سلیمان‎,  “the Throne of Solomon”) is a stunning archaeological site on top of a volcano. Beside the crater lake are ruins from different periods dating back to pre-islamic zoroastrian times. Placed in this hight deserted area, equipped with a spring-lake which is providing endless water its a impressive place. The place was one of the most important zorastrian firetempel. sadly there was hardly any information about this interesting place, so I just link you here to the Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Takht-e_Soleym%C4%81n

Iran Photos Part IV: Old Caravanserai On The Way From Isfahan To Golpayegan

on our first section of bicycling from Isfahan to Golpayegan, we actually found this ruin of a abandoned Caravanserai. I realy liked the look of the bare bricks. when you look closer you see a lot bullet-holes in the walls. I wonder what kind of fight had taken place here in the middle of nowhere?

Pinholephotos in Bolivia and Peru

I just processed an old film I used last year in a self-made pinhole-camera. All photos are taken in Bolivia or Peru. As I have to scan and edit the negatives by my self I will take some time till I post them here. For now just a single photo I have taken back around Cusco in Peru:
