Deep within the mountains of the Berchtesgaden National Park sits a deserted old fishing hut resting on the waters of the Obersee Lake. By the time it was rediscovered the hut had been completely emptied with no signs as to who the previous owners were or when it was built. Nestled in this beautiful scenery, you can imagine the joy it must be to sit in total peace and quiet and fish from the surrounding waters.
We bet this is a popular lake with locals, as well as those from further afield thanks to its gorgeous setting and ample stocks of freshwater fish enjoy the solitude and the scenery as they wait for the big catch of the day.
Cars Left By US Soldiers In Belgium
In a small village in southern Belgium called Chatillion, there is a graveyard of old cars which once belonged to the US army. Their soldiers were given these cars while they were stationed in Belgium during World War II. When the war was over the soldiers needed to decide what to do with their cars. They were given the option of having them shipped back to the US which the individual soldier would have to pay for. In the meantime, they parked all of the cars at the top of a hill where they wouldn’t be in the way.
Unsurprisingly, once the soldiers returned back to their lives in America, they were not interested in shipping a car from Belgium, and as a result, they were just abandoned in what looks like a car graveyard.
Smoking volcano on Mount Sinaburg
When the volcano Mount Sinaburg in Karo, Indonesia erupted, it filled the sky with smoke and ash where an abandoned church sat in its path of destruction. The Mount Sinabung volcano is highly active and in recent years has erupted several times. This has meant the local population has left the area, and so many buildings, homes, and churches have been left abandoned. Many fled the area when in 2015 another eruption took place and many residents decided to live in the path of a now-active volcano was too significant a risk to take.
Sadly, those who left were leaving their homes and their livelihoods, many of them farmers, and ended up staying in refugee camps. The hope is that once the volcano becomes dormant again, they will be able to return to their homes which currently lay abandoned, and rejuvenate their lives there.
This VW Bug Is Part of an Underwater Museum in Cancun, Mexico
This is a replica VW bug which is part of the exhibition at the Underwater Museum in Cancun. There are a total of 500 sculptures that make up the whole museum most of which were designed by a British sculptor named Jason deCaires Taylor. He created many of the installations along with five other Mexican artists.
The museum is comprised of three galleries that sit between 3-6 meters below the water, making it a dream visit for those who love snorkeling or diving. This sculpture of the VW beetle car, the classic of Volkswagens, is now home to all different kinds of sea life.
A Storm Approaches An Old Abandoned Farm in Ontario
This is a puzzling scene. The house in the background is completely dilapidated with the wood on the exterior falling apart. The trees are completely bare which isn’t surprising seeing as we are in Canada. However, in the foreground is a perfectly manicured lawn.
This picture fills us with intrigue. Who could be taking such immaculate care of this patch of green grass but leaving the house behind in a state of ruin? This would be a great talking point if it featured in a portrait gallery or in someone’s home, especially with those looming clouds up above.
