The beautiful experience of my second time trip to the Holy Land will linger for a lifetime because I went after just finishing the BLOGGING-U photo101 course. The trip was an opportunity to exercise my photography skills after having finished the course…and yes I did take pictures. :D.
My Holyland bliss #2; Beauty in the Dead Sea.
Before I share the photos , Let me tell you some facts about the Dead Sea.
-The Dead Sea bordering Israel,the West bank, and Jordan, it is a small lake and its banks are more than 400m below sea level. It is famous for its hyper-saline salinity which makes for floating easily.
The mineral -rich black mud is a beauty resource for therapeutic and cosmetic treatment.
*The Dead Sea surface and shores are about 423 metres below sea level, making it the lowest place on Earth.
*The hyper salinity of the sea makes it the only sea with the highest saline level surpassing that of ocean water.
*With about 33% salinity, the Dead sea is one of the world’s saltiest body of water.
*As a result of the unusual high salt concentration, people can easily float in it dur to natural buoyancy.
*The Dead Sea lies in the Jordan Rift Valley and its main tributary is the Jordan River.
*The Dead Sea area has become a major center for health,beauty and cosmetic research.
Biblically, the Dead Sea was a place of refuge for king David.
The popular product powered by the energising Dead Sea, is the *Ahava Dead Sea Minerals.
We sure had fun floating, mud masking and even some mudlovin :D.
BTW, I didn’t float it in though,but had fun catching others with my candid camera.
