Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Milky Way Over Mt. Sabalan” by Morteza Safataj.
“Spending a couple of nights shooting and exploring Mt. Sabalan’s sidehill under a clear night sky,” said Safataj. “A remote location with minor light pollution that made it ideal for a wide-field astrophotography. I found endless compositions with beautiful meadows, streams and mineral springs in the sidehills. Mt. Sabalan is an inactive stratovolcano in Ardabil Province of Northwestern Iran with 4,811 m (15,784 ft.) elevation.”
