Photo of the Week – Sinkholes at Dead Sea

I was guiding yesterday at Masada and Ein Gedi and talked about the changes in the levels of the Dead Sea and the occurrence of sinkholes along the shoreline. We stopped to take a look at some sinkholes closeup and I took these two photographs of a blue sinkhole and a photo of salt patterns at the edge of the sea. The Dead Sea is a unique location and it is fascinating to photograph there. You can also see another post of sinkhole photos here.
