The Dead Sea Looks Like A Beautiful Abstract Painting From Above

Dead Sea Tzvik Stein

Thanks to its picturesque turquoise waters and purported therapeutic qualities, the Dead Sea makes regularly appears on the bucket lists of travellers from all over the world.

Situated more than 400m below sea level in the Jordan Rift Valley, the Dead Sea – which is actually a lake – is bordered by Israel to the east and Jordan to the west. Its hyper-salty water is known for its buoyancy, while the mud found on its banks are rich in health-boosting minerals.

A terminus for the flow of rainwater, meaning water flows in, but not out. That, coupled with searing temperatures, means large amounts of water evaporate every year.

Over the past year, amateur photographer Tzvik Stein has made countless trips to the area to capture the otherworldly landscape with his drone. Given temperatures can rise as high as 45 degrees Celcius, he often leaves at the break of dawn to escape the oppressive heat.

Sinkholes make it unsafe to walk on parts of the land where it meets the sea, so Stein says that, while drone photography mitigates much of that risk, it’s also revealed parts of the landscape he’d never seen before.
