Date/Time of photo
Camera: Canon EOS 60D self modified. Lens: Canon EFS 18-55mm IS kit lens @18mm F:9 ISO:100 95sec total exposure.
At first my plan was to drive about 130Km to somewhere between SaAdat-shahr and Arsanjan around north-east of Shiraz, Iran. Then suddenly this came into my mind: Lets get a shot of Haez tomb! (or hafeziye). Since Hafeziye is open to public until 21:30 local time, someone stepped on my hand as i was taking the shot, so at the top right corner, you see that ISS's path in the sky is shaky. the strange thing in this image is the ISS path does not seem to be uniform, in a few places its changing direction is obvious.
