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.
