It seems like yesterday that I was in Israel with my family but it has been 5 months since our trip to this amazing country. The contrast is huge from the first world and all the way back to biblical times. I have selected about 50 images for this visual blog, however we have many more interesting images on file so if wanting to see more please drop me a e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy the images.
The Dead Sea which forms part of the Great Rift Valley is the lowest spot on earth at about 429 metres below Sea Level and dropping in excess of a metre every year. I am not going to attempt to explain the huge problems due to the dramatic drop in the water level of the Dead Sea but I am going to point you to my good friend Elhanan Yairs blog that says it all. Elhanan is an amazing individual and great photographer. Elhanan’s blog: http://deadseaphotos.com/, the blog is in hebrew but simply click on the translate to english.
