Earth Art - Iran Desert Viewed From Space
The Great Salt Desert, Iran
Spilled Paint ... Like poster paints run wild, this image reveals an eclectic montage of landscapes in Iran's largest desert, Dasht-e Kavir, or Great Salt Desert. Kavir is Persian for salt marsh. The almost uninhabited region covers an area more than 77,000 square kilometers (29,730 square miles) and is a mix of dry stream-beds, desert plateaus, mudflats and salt marshes. Extreme heat, dramatic daily temperature swings and violent storms is the norm in this in hospitable place.
Art of nature viewed from satellite earth orbit, the beauty of mountains, rivers, oceans, trees and grasses, deserts, glaciers, tundra, islands, plains, sea coasts, and geological formations.
