At the edge of the Dead Sea

The Dead Sea is the lowest place on Earth (420m or 1400ft under sea level) and is one of the saltiest bodies of water. The water is so dense that you can actually float in it. The edge of the Dead Sea is covered by thick layers of blinding white salt covering the rocks. I stopped here on the Jordan shores of the lake to take a photo of these rock-salt formations which resembled large patches of cauliflower.
