Dead Sea by DaniBabitz Dead Sea by DaniBabitz
Dead Sea , Israel , December 2012


The Dead Sea , also called the Salt Sea, is a salt lake bordering Jordan to the east and Israel and the West Bank to the west. Its surface and shores are 423 metres (1,388 ft) below sea level, the lowest elevation on the Earth's surface on dry land. The Dead Sea is 377 m (1,237 ft) deep, the deepest hypersaline lake in the world. With 33.7% salinity, it is also one of the world's saltiest bodies of water, though Lake Assal (Djibouti), Garabogazköl and some hypersaline lakes of the McMurdo Dry Valleys in Antarctica (such as Don Juan Pond) have reported higher salinities. It is 8.6 times saltier than the ocean. This salinity makes for a harsh environment in which animals cannot flourish, hence its name. The Dead Sea is 67 kilometres (42 mi) long and 18 kilometres (11 mi) wide at its widest point.

Wow, I've always though of the sea as red or pretty dark water. I like it the contrast here thought, great job! ;)

if you're gonna take a photo of the sea, make sure that most of the picture is of the sea. This pic is awesome! Really beautiful! But I just don't really know where to look.

Me, I just look at the sky. Love the sky.
