These few weeks in April are the most pleasant time to take a ride on route 90 for a day trip to the Dead Sea. As a photographer I find the best time is being in the place I want to photograph at least one-hour before sunrise and staying in place for the next 90 minutes. The second window in the day is one-hour before sunset. Get positioned and stay in that vicinity for at least 45 minutes after sunset. Images of Ibex jumping from rock to rock, the color of the sunset settling over the water, the red glow of the mountains will all be brought out in magnificent natural color.

Here are a few images I shot at the Dead Sea recently.
