The staff of ISRAEL21c all loved this photograph sent in by Roy Katalan of the Dead Sea at sunset.
The color of the sky combined with the stillness of the sea, and the harsh desert
landscape combine to create a beautiful shot that captures some of the unique atmosphere of the Dead Sea.

Katalan was one of the entrants to our Great Outdoors Photo Competition.

    Guess I’m a little confused. Wouldn’t that picture have to be taken from the Jordanian side?

    Very beautiful………………

    I remember the Dead Sea or Sdom as it is called, sadly a few years ago when I visited Israel taking a tour from Jerusalem that the water level was much receding. I was in the Hagannah in 1949 stationed in Ein Chusub Picud Hadarom and would drive a food truck to Sdom. The food was then transported to by boat to Ein Gedy………..then a military lonely outpost only
    accessible that way. Henry Meisel.
