Sap surfing - standing upright on a board using an oar to paddleÊ- has become a popular pastime for tourists and locals alike off the shores of Israel. In a series of pictures taken by Reuters photographer Baz Ratner, sap surfers appear suspended in the shot, with the hazy skyline merging with the still waters against a misty backdrop. Similar conditions are seen on the Dead Sea, where swimmers enjoy a dip in the salty waters that are mentioned in the Bible and sit at the lowest point on Earth.

As night-time approaches in Sanliurfa, southeastern Turkey, most of the alleyways of the city's old bazaar are emptying out of buyers and vendors, except for one. The bustle of daytime trading has died down, but on this little street, a stream of men carry cardboard boxes filled with pigeons to a cluster of three teahouses. Here, they sell the birds at Sanliurfa's famed auctions to a dedicated band of pigeon keepers and breeders, a pastime that has been thriving for hundreds of years across the region and over the nearby border into war-torn Syria. In a country where the minimum wage is about 1,400 Liras ($367) a month, enthusiasts regularly easily spend hundreds of dollars for one bird. "I once sold a pair of pigeons forÊ35,000 Turkish Lira," says auctioneer Imam Dildas. "This is a passion, a hobby you cannot quit. I've been known to sell the fridge and my wife's gold bracelets to pay for pigeons." REUTERS/Umit Bektas SEARCH "PIGEONS AUCTION" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.

With more than 17,000 people aged 100 or over, Spain is the country with the greatest life expectancy after Japan, OECD data and the latest population census shows. Over a year, Reuters photographer Andrea Comas interviewed and photographed Spaniards aged 100 or more across the country from the green-hilled northern region of Asturias to the Balearic island of Menorca. Average life expectancy at birth in Spain is 83.2, according to the latest OECD statistics made available in 2013, just a shade below the 83.4 years on average a Japanese newborn can expect to live. Most of the men and women Comas interviewed showed a zest for life and an interest in pastimes from amateur dramatics to playing the piano. Many also continued to carry out daily duties from farm work to caring for a disabled child. REUTERS/Andrea Comas SEARCH "CENTENARIANS" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
