Iran Chogha Zanbil _DSC19059

Apart from the ziggurat, the Chogha Zanbil site contains the foundations of many support buildings, not always built from adobe mud-straw construction. The remarkable durability of adobe was demonstrated when oldest pieces of adobe in Iran were found here.

 

What struck me when I composed this in wide angle was the contrast between the straight and soft lines, highlighted by the harsh sunlight.
