The largest astrophotography competition in the world, Astronomy Photographer of the Year showcases the very best space photography from a global community of photographers.

Undoubtedly, Mount Damavand is one of the most beautiful and outstanding natural wonders of Iran. It is approximately 5,670 metres high and is located 66 kilometres north-east of Tehran – you can see the city’s light pollution on the right. This photo of the Milky Way is taken from the mountain at Nandal village beside a small lake which appears when the snow melts and dries out in the summer. The water's surface is as clear as a mirror. I hiked for about seven hours and ascended more than 1,000 meters to get there. It was very cold and windy! I started capturing at midnight and finished at 3 a.m.
