A tourist takes a picture of the Jordanian mountains of Moab reflected on the Dead Sea. The inland sea which separates Israel and Jordan is retreating by about a meter a year as the two countries divert almost 90% of the Jordan River waters that for thousands of years fed the mineral-rich sea. They are now seeking international support for a plan to pipe water north from the Gulf of Aqaba to the Dead Sea to rescue the shrinking sea. Photo by Quique Kierszenbaum
