Wilderness & civilization reflected

Naomi, Libby, and I drove from Jerusalem down down down to the Dead Sea on Monday, when it was still fairly sunny and clear.
This photo for Weekend Reflections shows the light at 3:30 pm when the sun was getting low in the west.
The shadows of the mountains were reflected in the still waters of the Dead Sea, as was our destination, the tall white Le Meridien hotel at the Ein Bokek resort complex.
For how the weather totally changed in the next days, please see the earlier post.

Strange, I never think of there being hotels by the Dead Sea - keep thinking it's out in the middle of nowhere. It sounds like you had an exciting vacation :)

What an adventure.
Thank you for the glimpse of your environment.

A safe road ahead and a good weekend too.

The Dead Sea is still such a strong memory. I love the idea that Naomi was there to lecture and could combine "business" with pleasure.
