The view of Dead Sea in its central part... You can see palm orchard of Mitzpe Shalem kibbutz in the foreground and the hills in Jordan in the background...
Mitzpe Shalem, situated in the northern area of the Dead Sea, was established in 1977 by a Nahal group. Mitzpe Shalem is located in the Judean Desert between the sea and the desert, and overlooks an enchanting view. Mitzpe Shalem is about a 45-minute drive from Jerusalem. It has a rural, desert character that fits in well with the natural environment.
The economy of the kibbutz depends on agriculture and tourism. In agriculture, the kibbutz has an orchard of palm trees with an area of about 400 dunams and a coop for raising turkeys. Tourism includes the Mineral Beach of the Dead Sea, with its sulfur-enhanced baths, and an organized swimming beach.

A very beautiful landscape picture with the different horizontal layers: the palmtrees on the FG, the brown flat desert area in front of the beautiful blue Dead Sea and the high mountains in Jordan.
Best regards, Paul

Bardzo ładna oaza. Piękny widok na Morze Martwe i delikatnie zamglony drugi brzeg. Ja właśnie tam byłam... Pozdrawiam z Lizbony

That's another wonderful picture!
Sharpness, exposure, pov, dof, colors, black&white frame and composition are all very good elements here too!
It's so nice to see so many details from such a distant land!
TFS - congratulations!
