Long exposure image of winter stars setting behind an ancient gate and a recently installed statue of Arash the Archer, a heroic figure of Iranian mythology. Lights of nearby towns illuminate the horizon. Stars of Orion (the Hunter) and Taurus (the Bull) form the trails. Located in the town of Saryazd in central Iran, this gate is ruin of an ancient city which is buried under the desert.
