It does not really rain at the Dead Sea at all. Well, this time – in April 2023 – a quite strong thunderstorm with pouring rain hit the area. So the classic shot with blue sky was turned into a dramatic view from the salty Israelian coastline across the Dead Sea towards Jordan … and … with a double rainbow! Probably a pretty unique photo.
A few hours earlier the weather was much better as the above shot from the rock plateau of Masada over the Dead Sea valley shows. In the back one can see the Jordanian mountains.
The above shot shows a salty beach at En Bokek with the thunderstrom moving towards the north.
