You might not think about it, but Iran is an extraordinarily beautiful country. 

These days we view them as "an enemy", because of conflicting religous politics, but it was not always so; there was a time when Iran was a staunch U.S. ally, and a time before that when Persia was one of the most influential and advanced countries on Earth. 

How things changed I'll leave to others and other times to explain, but in the meantime I wanted to share this collection of amazing photographs of Iran.  Enjoy.
