Header Images: A four-season journey through Persia

I have decided to change my header images in concert with seasonal themes, and try to depict Iran, its landscape and its people through these images.
What you see now is a picture of Mount Damavand, the tallest mountain in the Iranian Plateau, located just North of Tehran; and looking at the picture I can tell this picture was probably taken near the beginning of Esfand in the Persian Calendar, that is around the end of February to beginning of March.

Mount Damavand has been used as a symbol of national pride, unity, strength and resistance against foreign rule in Persian literature, qualities that are particularly relevant in the face of the current crisis.
