Photographer's Note

The Dead sea is continually fed water from the rivers that surround it, but there are no rivers that drain out of the Dead sea, so the only way that water gets out of the sea is evaporation and there is no problem to evaporate in this part of the country, because this place is very hot and dry.
When water evaporates it leaves behind all the disolved minerals that makes the sea very saltier. The fact that the water doesn't escape the sea just traps the salt within its shores.

This picture demonstrate the amount of salt that we can see in the Dead sea along the shores, it is enormous, that is the reason for the title.
Photographing this is like to get pictures in snow because the salt is white, so you can see that the bacground is a little bit dark.
