Dead Sea Swimmers

December 18

These swimmers are at the Dead Sea, Israel 1964. A long-time favorite – its such a great composition, I love the way the young girl in her white cap stands out, the pipes, the lolling swimmers on the lake shore. I wonder what it cost to pipe fresh water to this spot? Read about the history of the Dead Sea and environmental concerns.

I rebuilt the sky, restored the color through several layers and filters, and added in some sharpness.
