Dead Sea Sunset

Mujib, Jordan. 2011 - A*(85)

 

At 400m below sea level, the Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth. The water is 9 times saltier than the ocean (33% salinity). A haze hangs over the water providing partial protection from harmful UV rays.

 

This view looks across at Israel on the other side of the Sea from the RSCN chalets at Mujib.
