The lowest place on earth. I just had to visit the Dead Sea when I was touring Europe back in the 70's.  This is an Ektachrome slide. Back in the days of film I had to carry at least two cameras. On this trip I only had one and it was borrowed. Each camera would be loaded with a film suited for indoor and another for outdoor. I had just visited Bethlehem and used this film which is used inside under artificial lighting. I still had frames left on the roll so I couldn't just change. The bluish tint is a result. I did go for a dip on the water and enjoyed the bouyancy. Traveling in the middle east in the winter is the best time to avoid crowds. There was no one here but me.
