Photographer's Note

The lowest point on earth at 429 metres below sea level. The saline content is the 2nd highest in the world. It's aptly named, as no crustaceans or fish can survive in its hyper-salty environment. The opposite shore is the Israeli side of the Dead Sea. Swimming face down in the water is not recommended as your head is pushed down and stomach up. Plus it stings your eyes and ears and any cuts or scratches. Best to just lay on your back.
