Photographer's Note

Dead waters of Dead Sea in supposedly Holy Land.
Dead Sea is actually a very salty lake which lay between Israel and Jordan. Dead Sea is not the most salty lake in the world (some lakes in Antarctica are actually even more salty), but its surely the most famous one.
***
This is nowadays is actually quite interesting place, where everything which have no some water is dead and barren - only sand, salt and mountains.
Along the coast there are some inhabited places, with touristic things like spa and hotels being there. All other shore of the Dead Sea is empty and barbed-wired with many signs which prohibit of being on the shore after dark and fighter jets flying over the dead waters instantly.
***
Middle East is on fire, but Dead Sea is dead already, so it's very calm now.
