Picture of the day
Desierto de Lut, Irán, 2016-09-22, DD 71-86 HDR PAN.jpg

HDR panoramic view of approx. 180 degrees during sunset of Dasht-e Loot, in English "Emptiness desert", located in the provinces of Kerman and Sistan-Baluchistan, Iran. This place is pretty special for being the spot on the Earth where the highest temperature was ever measured (70 °C or 159 °F) and since July 2016 a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
