As day turns into night, Tiny stars come alive. I took this photo of milky way rising above Badab-Surt spring lake, northern Iran. Badab-Surt comprises a range of stepped travertine terrace formations that has been created over thousands of years as flowing water from two mineral hot springs cooled and deposited carbonate minerals on the mountainside.
