the dead sea, a world natural wonder is suffering from dehydration and mineral excavation, this man made changes effect the natural scene and have created many sink-holes that are dangerous to human, leaving vast areas deserted and desolated. the only way to safely explore this area is by boats / kayaking. there are only few designated spots where humans can launch the kayaks to the water without the danger of falling into sink-holes. i was looking for a contrast between the natural desolation and the colourful human existence represented by the kayaks and the kayakers.
