Dead Dusk

Dead Dusk

After spending the afternoon wandering the grounds of Masada, Shimon rushed us south to get to some salt pillars on the Dead Sea before sunset.  We lost the race, but still had a few minutes on the banks to take some interesting shots.

This was my favorite of the bunch.

And it caused quite a bit of discussion amongst Shimon and I on my technique.  But I won’t bore you with the details here.

And for a very nice post by Shimon on the Dead Sea, including pictures he took while I took this one, browse here.

For those that are geographically challenged, the mountains in the distance on the right are in Jordan, in the distance on the left are in Israel.  That means we’re looking north in this picture.

Looking east, across the Dead Sea from Israel into Jordan.

I do love when birds purposefully place themselves in my shot just to add that little bit of light to the image.
