Photographer's Note

Submerged salt tiers along the shoreline of the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth (-430m) and the 2nd saltiest body of water on earth. The saltiest is in Antarctica. Not many people are interested in swimming there! Both Jerusalem and Amman are about 10c cooler than the Dead Sea Valley and are situated atop the plateaux either side of the rift valley partly filled by the Dead Sea & Sea of Galilee.
