Dead Sea , Israel , 2012

Nikon D300 , Samyang 8mm Fisheye

Large and heavy deposits of salt , sinkholes , the deepest place on the Planet , end of the World.

The Dead Sea , also called the Salt Sea, is a salt lake bordering Jordan to the east and Israel and the West Bank to the west. Its surface and shores are 423 metres (1,388 ft) below sea level, the lowest elevation on the Earth's surface on dry land. The Dead Sea is 377 m (1,237 ft) deep, the deepest hypersaline lake in the world. With 33.7% salinity, it is also one of the world's saltiest bodies of water, though Lake Assal (Djibouti), Garabogazköl and some hypersaline lakes of the McMurdo Dry Valleys in Antarctica (such as Don Juan Pond) have reported higher salinities. It is 8.6 times saltier than the ocean. This salinity makes for a harsh environment in which animals cannot flourish, hence its name. The Dead Sea is 67 kilometres (42 mi) long and 18 kilometres (11 mi) wide at its widest point.

Wow, this is absolutely amazing! You did a great job with using the fisheye effect in this photo--especially with where the horizon sits. The salt deposits really add to the centralized yet warped effect. Great job overall! I love it!
